    PSR PARENTS Let me begin by assuring you of my prayers during this time, especially as school starts up again. Let us pray

It's the Lord who forgives us, saves us, gives us life, gives us purpose, and gives us the grace to fulfill what He asks of us. Let us continue to pray for one another and give God continual thanks for our
