Dear St. Patrick Families:
St. Patrick Catholic High School will be closed on Wednesday, October 28, and Thursday, October 29, in anticipation of severe weather conditions and flooding related to Hurricane Zeta. There will be no in-person or virtual classes. All classes, athletic events, extracurricular activities, and athletic practices are canceled for Wednesday and Thursday.
At this time, St. Patrick will reopen and classes will resume on Friday, October 30. If that changes, we will communicate with you via SchoolMessenger, our website, and our social media pages.
Stay safe during the storm, and know that your family is in our prayers. Thank you for your support of St. Patrick and Catholic education. Please reach out if there is anything you need.
All the best,
Dr. Matt Buckley
God of the Universe, at the dawn of creation, your Spirit breathed on the waters, making them the wellspring of all holiness. You created the oceans and rivers, and all that dwell within them, and at your word the wind and the waves were born.
The seasons follow your plan, and the tides rise and fall on your command. In both calm and storm, you are with us. On the Sea of Galilee, even when the disciples began to fear, Jesus showed that he was Lord over the waters by rebuking the storms, so that all would know that even the wind and the waves obey him.
Creator God, we ask you to calm the wind and the waves of the approaching hurricane, and spare those in its path from harm. Help those who are in its way to reach safety. Open our hearts in generosity to all who need help in the coming days.
In all things and in all times, help us to remember that even when life seems dark and stormy, you are in the boat with us, guiding us to safety. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
