SCS Preschoolers Get Their First Lesson
Our SCS Preschool teacher Mrs. John is showing the preschoolers why it is important to wash our hands for 20 seconds. Mrs. John “sneezed” into her hands and had germs of “white paint” all over her blue gloves. She then washed her hands while they counted to 20 and all the germs “white paint” came off. It was pretty cool if I say so myself.

Prayer of St. Columba

Be a bright flame before me, Oh God, a guiding star above me. Be a smooth path below me, a kindly shepherd behind me today, tonight and for ever. Alone with none but you, my God I journey on my way; what need I fear when you are near, O Lord of night and day? More secure am I within your hand than if a multitude did round me stand.
