A Blessing and an Eclipse

//A Blessing and an Eclipse

The 2017-2018 school year at OLR began with a school blessing and ended with a total solar eclipse. What a great event to start the year off with!

God of wisdom and might,
we praise you for the wonder of our being,
for mind, body and spirit.
Be with our children as they begin
a new school year.
Bless them and their teachers and staff.
Give the strength and grace as their bodies grow;
wisdom and knowledge to their minds
as they search for understanding;
and peace and zeal to their hearts.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We even managed to get solar viewing glasses on Fr. Longenecker! Here’s hoping that the rest of the year at OLR is just as memorable.
