A Prayer for Peace, Hope and Healing
Students, administration, faculty and staff of Mother Seton Regional High School, Clark, New Jersey, participated in the National Student Walkout Day, Thursday, March 14, 2018. Students assembled to view a video from Cardinal Tobin encouraging all students to pray for a safe environment in all our schools. After listening to Cardinal Tobin’s message, everyone proceeded outdoors and gathered around the statute of Saint Elizabeth Anne Seton located on campus for a prayer service for Peace, Hope and Healing.
The prayer service was under the direction of Sister Mary Anne Katlack, campus minister at Mother Seton. This event is supported by the Archdiocese of Newark and framed by the Archdiocese of Newark. Students participated in the prayer service through reflections, a Psalm Prayer and Intercessions. Prayers were offered for the most recent victims, the high school students and teachers in Parkland, Florida.
The prayer service concluded with everyone praying together in one voice the Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi.
