A message of solidarity, strength, and peace

Dear Friends,
In these challenging times, we write to you with a message of solidarity. Recently, the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus issued a prayer we felt compelled to share with our broader community:
Help us, God, to end racism and violence! The death of George Floyd was unnecessary, filled with hatred, and enormously disturbing. Join us in praying for the Floyd family and all those grieving and in deep pain. On this Pentecost Sunday, let us center our thoughts and actions on God's love and grace. Let us be agents of change to end social and racial injustice.
The Mayfield Senior School community stands with the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus in condemning the murder of George Floyd. And we are committed to combating racism and violence, and working for social justice.
Indifference has never been part of the Holy Child philosophy, and never will be. We will continue to actively work for the Christian principles of justice, peace, and compassion in every facet of life.
Wishing you peace, strength, and resilience. Praying you remain safe and healthy.
With Love and Gratitude, 
Kate Morin
