Blessing for Masks
Despite masks, we could still see happiness on students' and teachers' faces as school began. ESA Chaplain Fr. Armond offered this prayer for the blessing of face coverings:
O Lord God, you have given us a Law of Love that tells us to love our neighbors as ourselves: Accept our
offering of these face coverings which we now dedicate to you for the health, safety, and well-being of your people. Grant that, as we conceal our faces with these coverings, we also reveal your Divine Love to one another; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
