Prayer for Mother’s Day
Heavenly Father, on this Mother’s Day, we thank You for our mothers through whom Your gift of life begins and through whom we are nurtured into great human beings. Heavenly Father, on this Mother’s Day, we thank You for our mothers through whom Your gift of life begins and through whom we are nurtured into great human beings. We acknowledge that it’s hard, conscientious work and effort and we ask You, Lord, to bless them for all their contributions toward family life and it’s growth. Grant that they may be joyous in their ordeal of being a mother and proud in raising the family You gave gifted. – Amen (https://christianstt.com/mothers-day-prayer/)

  • Happy Mother’s Day: We wish all mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and women who play an important role in the lives of our students a very Happy Mother’s Day.
  • Staffing Update: It is with a heavy heart we announce Mrs. Robinson will be moving on to Queen of Heaven for the 2021-2022 school year as Vice Principal.  Mrs. Robinson has worked tirelessly here for the past three years forging relationships with staff, students and parents alike.  Her work ethic, care and compassion is second to none and she has accomplished amazing things here at Lumen Christi.  She is an exemplary model of servant leadership in both her words and actions and her dedication to the school community and families in our care has been extraordinary.  We ask you keep Mrs. Robinson in your thoughts and prayers; and please join us in offering our gratitude and best wishes as she moves on to a new chapter in her professional career. 

Thank you Mrs. Robinson for your contributions to Lumen Christi.  You will be missed immensely.  God bless you and may God continue to shine His light on you as you continue to do your great work for the Queen of Heaven Community.
