Dear Members of the Chaminade-Madonna Community:
CMCP will be in session on Monday, March 16 from 8:00am-2:45pm. We will run a full 7 period schedule to allow students to meet with all of their teachers for orientation to the closure period which will begin on Tuesday, March 17.
Please advised that our spring break week is moved from the original April dates to the week of March 23-27.
We will monitor the situation and make a return to campus determination as soon as feasible.
Let us pray for the world as the human community responds to this time of challenge.
Prayer for Patience and Calm
Lord, in your mercy you heal those suffering in body, mind or spirit. We call out to you now on behalf of those infected by the coronavirus. Heal the sick, and bind up the broken-hearted who grieve those felled by this illness.
As both infection and fear spread, we ask for courage and protection for healthcare workers risking their own well-being for the sake of others. We pray for wisdom for government officials and those in decision-making positions. May they rightly discern what needs to be done to treat those already infected and prevent others from becoming ill.
We know there are those in quarantine, afraid they might be exposed to illness, wondering when they will return to their normal lives, anxious about what might happen next. Comfort them with your peace that passes understanding and grant them patience during this challenging time.
Lord of all, we are intimately connected to one another no matter where we reside on the earth, and so we ask for healing, good healthcare, relief and wholeness for the human community. May our collective care, effort, resources and love bring a swift end to the pandemic.
