Have a Great Summer Holy Spirit!!

Hello Families of the Mighty Holy Spirit!!

The year has come to an end! It was definitely a year we will never forget and was filled with many celebrations and challenges. We would like to thank our Mighty Holy Spirit Community – students, parents/guardians, grandparents and staff members – for all you do! It was unbelievable to see the way our Holy Spirit Community came together to conquer the challenges we faced, without you this unprecedented year is not as successful.

Summer is here and although it may not feel like a normal summer we want you relax and enjoy the beautiful time we have ahead of us. Try something different, get outside, go for a hike, spend time with family, be safe and enjoy.

We are extremely proud of you and miss all of you. We are looking forward to seeing the Mighty Holy Spirit in the fall.

 

End of School Year Prayer

O God of all beginnings and endings, we praise and thank You for the gift of this school year.

It has been a time filled with grace and blessings, with challenges and opportunities, joys and sorrows.

The days have passed quickly, O Lord. The weeks, the months, the seasons, the holidays and holy days, the tests, vacations, breaks and assemblies, all have come forth from Your hand.

While we trust that Your purposes have always been at work each day, sometimes it has seemed difficult to understand and appreciate just what You have been up to in our school.

Give us the rest and refreshment we need this summer. Let our efforts of this past year bear fruit. Bring all of our plans to a joyful conclusion, and bless us, according to Your will.

With the fulfillment of our summer hopes and dreams. Watch over us in the weeks of rest ahead and guide each day as You have done this past year. Help us return to school with a new spirit and a new energy.

May we continue to grow in age, wisdom, knowledge and grace all the days of our lives.

Amen.
