A MESSAGE FROM OUR CAMPUS MINISTER
Greetings In Christ Jesus,
The Church, in her wisdom, gives us many ways to pray through the season of Lent and uses our senses to help us fully enter in.
Touch - Hold a small crucifix or rosary in your hand while you ask for God’s healing power over your life.
Sound - Read the daily readings for the day. Sit in silence and listen to God speak to your heart. They can be accessed through usccb.org (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops).
Sight- Watch the livestream of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Many of our local Catholic Churches in our diocese are live streaming daily Mass and Eucharistic Adoration. Please visit diocesealex.org for a complete list. There are also many Catholic videos you can access online by Bishop Barron’s Word on Fire, Fr. Mike Schmitz, and EWTN.
These are just a few ways to follow and trust in Jesus today and always. Trust in my prayers and those of the Holy Savior Menard faculty and staff. We will move through this together, with God’s help. Jesus, we trust in you.
The most sacred heart of Jesus, have mercy on us; Immaculate heart of Mary, pray for us.
Pope Francis’ Prayer to Mary during Coronavirus Pandemic
O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of Your People, know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
There are many seasons throughout life. There are seasons of fear, anxiety, confusion and chaos. We must, however, re-order ourselves and see this time as you would see winter. It will be spring soon. See it as you see night. It will be day soon. See it as you see the desert. It will be Easter soon. Cling to the Cross, not out of fear, but out of love. There is no Easter Sunday, without Good Friday. May you find joy and peace in the hope that awaits us through the promise of the Savior, Jesus Christ.
In Christ and St. Catherine,
Jessica Sanders - Campus Minister

Welcome to Holy Savior Menard
At the core of Holy Savior Menard is an invitation to build up The Kingdom of God. And because God's Kingdom is composed of people, HSM is focused on the formation of the human person. We go far beyond educating children intellectually and physically. Instead, we strive to form children by incorporating spiritual and vocational truths in everything we do.
