You Are Never Alone

God knows! God knows everything! But what exactly does that mean? It means that God knows your heart and your soul. He knows you, truly. We teach our students to talk to God about everything. We ask for prayers for the people who struggle and need God to be with them. We talk to God about our sins and how we can get on the path back to a joyful heart. We practice seeing God in all things by appreciating all of our blessings: both big and small. We ask God to forgive us when we have been mean or made a mistake that hurt someone. We ask God to be with us when we are asked to do something hard or new. In short, we put God into all parts of our day, every day.

Sacred Heart is a wonderful place for children to be educated because we are able to teach the importance of prayer as the children are learning and developing. Our students are a gift and we can remind them how perfectly unique and special they are because God has a purpose for each of them. We teach our students to think about how much Jesus loves them and what it means to share that love with the world. The mission at Sacred Heart reflects our core belief that each child has unlimited potential to be amazing. They are taught by the teachers and staff that they can persevere with school work, friendships, competition, serving the community and all expectations because they have the power to talk to God about it. Our mission at Sacred Heart School is for our students to be balanced: confident of mind, academics and Catholic faith. As we begin another school year, it is this mission that guides us. The confidence in knowing that God is with you, through absolutely everything, is the best gift we can give our children.

Prayer is at the core of all that we do.  Matthew 19:26:  Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Father Todd made a great, short video with ideas for prayer time at home entitled What does family prayer time look like?  https://youtu.be/EiZ5MjRJK5Q

You are never alone and you are blessed. If you need extra prayers, reach out to me at aatkin@sacredhearthudson.org and we will add your intentions to morning prayer and the 5th/6th grade Friday Rosary walks.

 

God Bless,
