To Parents and Teachers from Padre Pio Academy
Dear Parents and Teachers,
I am sure you are all wondering what is next with school. We are going to take this week off as stated earlier (March 23-27). At the end of the week we will see what the status of the virus is and what all the state and local restrictions will be. At that time we will decide if we will send home a lesson plan (weekly, bi-weekly, etc.), or teach classes via zoom or maybe even return to school. It is in the hands of God.
Right now the best thing to do is stay safe at home, give everyone vitamin C, pray the rosary everyday, study the catechism, pray a novena to St. Joseph to ask his assistance in getting through this scourge. The most beneficial practice will be to continue this Lenten sacrifice and pray.
A Novena to St. Joseph during this pandemic.
Glorious St. Joseph, foster-father and protector of Jesus Christ! To you I raise my heart and my hands to implore your powerful intercession. Please obtain for me from the kind Heart of Jesus the help and the grace of a happy death and the special favor I now implore for the Coronavirus to end. Guardian of the Word Incarnate, I feel animated with confidence that your prayers in my behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God.
V. O glorious St. Joseph, through the love you bear to Jesus Christ, and for the glory of His name.
R. Hear my prayers and obtain my petition.
May God watch over us all and protect us.
God bless you,
