stm school prayer By: Marcus Terrana (STM Class of 2011)
Dear God Help us to be inspired by the examples of St. Thomas More,
Like him, May we be faithful to our moral and ethical values, May we acquire knowledge and love of learning. May we act in accordance with our beliefs, in spite of criticism, May we trust in God and in His promises of justice and salvation...
a prayer for teachers
O God, source of all wisdom and knowledge, bless our Catholic teachers. Enlighten their minds with the light of Christ...

If you build it, they will come.
God said this to Noah when he told him to build the ark, “If you build it, they will come.”
And to Solomon when he told him to build the temple, “If you build it, they will come.”
And Jesus said this to Peter, calling him the rock, the foundation of the church, “If you build it, they will come.”
And even to Paul, converted on the road to Damascus, charged with building the fledgling Christian church, “If you build it, they will come.”
On our last PA day, as a staff, we reflected on times in our lives when God has spoken to us. Called US. We heard Juan Rives speak; a visitor to our school from the Dominican Republic. He told us about the technical school that he is building in Barrio Cinquo in San Christobal – a school that will educate the poorest of the poor. This school has walls. It needs a roof and windows and doors.
A school of hope, St. Thomas More, If you build it, they will come.
Dear God, Help me to dream big. Teach me that nothing is impossible with your grace and my trust in your plan. May my dreams lift up the hopes of others and build a brighter future for us all.
