Gator Gab – Week at a Glance for Week #30 – Apr. 15th-19th, 2019

Below is a peak at important information items followed by our Week ahead …

Stations of the Cross – Holy Thursday at 2:30 PM in the GYM

 

Today is Palm Sunday and as we journey together into Holy Week, our Grade 7’s will lead us in prayer as we pray the Stations of the Cross together as a Catholic School Community united in our Faith. Please join us if your schedule permits. A special prayer below captures the importance of JESUS’ DEATH and RESURRECTION for us all …

Dear God,

We remember today, the pain and suffering of the cross, and all that Jesus was willing to endure, so we could be set free. He paid the price, such a great sacrifice, to offer us the gift of eternal life.

Help us never to take for granted this huge gift of love on our behalf. Help us to be reminded of the cost of it all. Forgive us for being too busy, or distracted by other things, for not fully recognizing what you freely given, what you have done for us.

Thank you Lord that by your wounds we are healed. Thank you that because of your huge sacrifice we can live free. Thank you that sin and death have been conquered, and that your Power is everlasting.

Thank you that we can say with great hope, “It is finished…” For we know what’s still to come. And death has lost its sting. We praise you for you are making all things new.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen.
