Salpointe Weekly Peek - March 15, 2024

Happy Friday, Lancers!

In celebration of of Catholic Sisters Week, we offer this prayer: 
God bless Sisters who educate us, open our minds, and who care for our bodies and spirits. 
God bless Sisters who stand for justice, who bring hope to the poor, the marginalized.
God bless Sisters whose lives of prayer embrace a hurting world, beaming beacons of Christ’s light and peace.
God bless Sisters whose lives of faithful service do not diminish with the passing of time, whose prayers and sacrifice bring boundless grace.
God bless the women called to be Sisters, bless them with courage and bless their companions along with the journey of discovery.
God bless our Catholic Sisters!
