Daily Prayer & Reflection

Our Franciscan charism for the year is: STEWARDSHIP

​This is a word we may not hear often or fully understand. As a Franciscan school we work daily to instill and foster characteristics that will lead us all to more intentional and productive lives. Responsible Stewardship asks us to assume accountability for our choices, our use of the gifts of all creation, and our dealings with others throughout each day...a tall order! Our best success comes when we work together as a community, supporting and encouraging one another, realizing that sometimes we provide all of that while other times, we are the ones in need. We move forward together with mutual respect for one another in making stewardship a part of our daily lives here at TCHS as well as beyond. May God bless all of us as we share this journey together.
 
As we begin our summer R&R and enjoy the many gifts of our God through nature, leisure, and renewing friendships and acquaintances, let us keep foremost in our thoughts and prayers the many people and things for which we need to be grateful. Let us remember all of those who are sick of mind or body, those suffering in any way, and those who have no one to care for them.
 
Let us be especially thankful for all of those who enrich our lives each day with a smile, a kind word, or a good deed and may we return in like fashion those same gifts to others. May our sense of gratitude guide our lives as we enjoy the coming weeks.

St. Francis and St. Clare, bless and keep us each day. Amen.

Intentions

Email Sister Ann

Through the coming days we will remember in our prayers all of those in our TCHS Community who are ill in any way. Each day we will lift them to our God and ask His generous and loving attention to help heal and return each to good health. We pray for safety and good times for all and look forward to welcoming everyone in the fall.
