Normally we would have celebrated this day with an all school Mass, but these are not normal days. Following the directives of Governor DeWine, the Academy is closed physically, but we are still going strong in our “new normal” virtual environment. We continue to live the Congregation of St. Joseph’s charism of unity, “that all may be one.” As women of unifying love, this spirituality will guide us through these times.
So with that, let us share a prayer from our sponsors, the Congregation of St. Joseph: This St. Joseph’s Day, perhaps more than any other, the oneness of all Creation is globally evident. This is an occasion for all of us to pray more intensely for each other, especially doctors, nurses, medical staff, grocers and all others who are sacrificing their own health to keep us safe. Today we place all of them and each of us and our loved ones under the protection of Joseph, who protected Jesus and Mary, and who teaches us to protect one another and all that belongs to God. Each of you is in our hearts and prayer. Amen.
