The Prayer Corner

Daily Prayer & Reflection

Our Franciscan Charism focus for this school year is: INTEGRITY AND GRATITUDE

"In a world so torn apart by rivalry, anger, and hatred, we have this privileged vocation to be living signs of a love that bridges all division and heal all wounds."   -Henri Nouwen
As we move into October and remember with special attention our patron, St. Francis, whose feast day is on October 4th,  may we see ourselves as real and able instruments of peace.  May we bear peace and love and respect to all we meet, to all who need these things in their lives, and to all who are not being peace makers.  We ask the Holy Spirit to guide us in helping change this world now, today, right in our own lives and among our own friends and families.  
This offers us a very real and much needed opportunity to understand and see the results of 'letting our lights shine' and knowing that we can and do make a difference for good.
In a suffering world such as ours, these are the gifts we can share.

Email Sister Ann

As we start our new year, we have had many requests from faculty, staff, and TCHS families for prayers for the sick of body and mind.  We include all of our families and friends each and every day in our prayers and trust that God who sees and knows all of our good intentions will hear our prayers and assist us in times of need.  Please don't hesitate to be in touch with us for specific intentions and know that we do include them in prayer.

Please remember in your prayers the repose of the soul of Stephanie Buckley, Class of '65, IND, who died this past weekend and all of her family and friends who mourn her loss.
Let us remember two relatives of our Sisters in Aston, PA.
Mr. Jack Gunder, brother-in-law to one of our sisters and Mrs. Janice Clow, a cousin to another sister at the Motherhouse.  We also remember in our thoughts the families of these two individuals and ask God's comfort and grace.
Please keep in your prayers Duffy Baker, the son of Linda Baker, '66. Duffy suffered a stroke last week and is currently in the hospital recuperating.  We keep him and his wife and children in our thoughts and prayers and ask for his full  recovery.

'Prayers are requested for Addy Eppig, a premature baby, born very early and weighing only 2lbs. 7 oz. Please keep Addy and her family in your prayers.

Our TCHS community has been asked to pray for Ms. Theresa Taulbee who is ill and awaiting test asks for our prayers for a good outcome.
