A System Prayer From SMSA Chaplin, Fr. John Mitchell

A System Prayer on Finding a New President

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your love.  Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created and you shall renew the face of the earth.


Lord God, as our school searches for a new President to lead our community, send down your Holy Spirit to guide the decision making process. Send us a leader who will bless and strengthen our school according to your will, and who will in turn be blessed and strengthened by serving in our midst. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

From the Office of Dr. Julie Shively, EdD, 6 - 12 Principal

Good Friday: The Meaning of the Cross

Click here to view a short video from Fr. Mike as he explains why God’s answers often seem like contradictions to us.  While Jesus dying on the Cross makes no sense according to human wisdom, according to God’s perfect wisdom, the Cross answers all our most burning questions in a way only God can answer them.

Ledger Lent Challenge

The Cross is your price-tag, your victory and your mission. Make the Sign of the Cross right when you wake up every day this Lent.


Join in the Challenge by following us on Instagram @smsacampusministry.
