Moms in Prayer
Please make plans to ATTEND!!! EVERYONE IS WELCOME!!!
WHEN: Come and pray with us every FRIDAY morning (that our sons are in school) in the school chapel at 9:15AM (typically lasts about an hour - Come late, leave early, stay as long as you like). BEGINNING Friday, September 11, 2020.
CHANGE (September 11 through October 30): For the first 2 months (through at least October 30), we will plan to meet OUTSIDE on the track on the east side of the football field. Feel free to bring a chair, sit on the football benches or spread a blanket on the ground. PLEASE CHECK IN at the front desk before proceeding to the cross. Please bring a MASK in the event we are unable to socially distance.
WHAT IS MOMS IN PRAYER? Jesuit belongs to an international organization called Moms In Prayer International. The organization unites moms together in prayer for their children's school communities. Every Friday morning that our sons are in school, Jesuit mothers meet to pray for our sons, their teachers, our staff and administrators and our entire Jesuit Community. ANY mother of a current Jesuit student is invited to join us at anytime. We follow a general outline that includes prayer, Bible readings and prayer requests. Throughout the year, we pray for every student and Jesuit team member BY NAME! Please bring your Bible (or your phone is fine too!) if you would like to join in the Bible readings.
There is NO REQUIREMENT or expectation for you to speak if you are not comfortable; simply sitting quietly in prayer and enjoying fellowship with Jesuit Moms is one of the many blessings of our Jesuit Community.
When we are able, we hold a PRAYER VIGIL in the Prayer Garden during semester exams. During the vigil, at least one person is praying for our sons, non-stop beginning at 7:45AM until 15 minutes after the last exam ends. It is a beautiful, peaceful and calming gift we give our sons during a time which might be filled with anxiety and worry. We invite you to attend! Watch for more information as December and May approach!
We WELCOME EVERYONE to join our prayer community whenever you are able!
