Please send prayers today

The father of one of my 6th graders died last night after a long and lingering and hard fought 5 year battle with cancer. I teach in a Catholic school so we can pray for him and the family (Mass and rosary have been added to today's agenda), but I'll need your prayers so I handle this in the most compassionate way possible.

Every year for 20 years, I've had a student or two who have lost a parent to cancer, but this is the first year a parent has passed while the child is in my care.

Also, mom has stage 4 breast cancer.

In His peace,
Laura

Oh, my goodness! Poor child!

I will pray for peace in your heart so you can know how to best show love, reassurance, and comfort to the child and their friends today.

Also in a Catholic School, so be assured of our prayers. We’ve had a couple of tough losses as a community over the last five years and have found that God does give us the tools we need in the moment.

Prayers for all of your community today.

Sending up prayers for that poor child's family and for your school family. Please, God, heal his mom so they can take care of each other.
