Sacred Heart Families,
Thank you to everyone who donated to the Hudson Food Pantry by pledging money for the Walk of Faith last week. We were able to raise over $500 and many food donations. During the Walk of Faith, every student prays for the hungry, the dead, and people who serve. We begin by praying the Act of Faith together and walk to shine a light on how powerful faith is when we pray together. Faith gives us the ability to see, feel, and talk to God. Faith brings Jesus to life and gives us the power to help people. We had a special day practicing faith and using it to be stewards of God’s love.
This week we celebrated the Feast of the Guardian Angel. This is an important Feast Day to the students because we pray the Guardian Angel Prayer often. As the children grow, it is a comfort to know that they each have an individual angel assigned to them. We refer to the Guardian Angel prayer often as an easy reminder that we are always in the presence of God. We have a deeply personal connection that lights, guards, rules and guides us as we live every moment. Our guardian angel is tough and protects us from demons. Our guardian angel shows us right from wrong and reminds us of the virtue we need to be strong people.
