Easter Dinner Prayer

(a grace prayer before a meal)


As we gather together as family and friends we invite you once again into our lives.
May the hope of your resurrection color our days.
May the promise of your spirit working in us light up our lives.
May the love you revealed to us shape our giving.
May the truth in your word guide our journeys,
And may the joy of your kingdom fill our homes.

As we gather together underneath the banner of your life,
We thank you for all the wonderful food that we can now enjoy,
And celebrate your glorious resurrection.

Thank you Lord.

May Easter touch your heart and fill your life with love.
Toni Dimuzio and St. Martin of Tours Academy Staff

Thank you to all who patronized our “Paws To Read” Scholastic Book Fair last week. We earned over $700 in Scholastic Book credit to use for our library. The teachers also appreciated the donations made to their classroom libraries by parents.
