Prayer of Pope Francis during the coronavirus crisis

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 the Roman 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.

Guidance Resources

Encourage a Friar or a Panda

We can all use a bit of encouragement and advice, especially young people.
That's why I am asking our alumni, parents, staff, faculty, and friends to take a few moments and send a message to encourage a Senior Panda or Friar!
Your message will serve as a reminder to the seniors how many people in our Bonner & Prendie community are standing behind them and rooting for their success. Be as general or specific as you wish, and I will make sure it gets to a student.
We do not know what is in store for The Class of 2020. But we do know that they will be joining the 45,000+ Bonner & Prendie alumni family very soon and we want to encourage them during these last few months of their senior year.
Send your email to Tara Basile at
Thanks for your help.
God Bless,
John E. Cooke, Ed.D., President
