Prayers from Pittsburgh

kidsletter-webFrom almost 400 miles away, a Catholic school in Pittsburgh has sent prayers and support to the residents affected by Hurricane Sandy in Cape May and Atlantic counties.

St. Rosalia Academy, a Catholic elementary school located in the Greenfield section of Pittsburgh, sent letters from the school’s Builders Club, a service organization for students in grades four through eight.

“Please accept the prayers…written by our Builders Club students,” principal Sarah Tonski wrote in a letter to the Diocese odf Camden. “We continue to keep (you) in our daily prayers.”

“Dear God, May You Watch over all of the people in New Jersey, that were affected by Hurricane Sandy…. We offer them our prayers, thoughts, and all of our love.  Help us to be more like your only son, Jesus, so that we can bring his light, love, and our hope to everyone in New Jersey,” one student wrote in a letter.

In his letter thanking Principal Tonski and the students at St. Rosalia Academy, Bishop Joseph Galante wrote that Hurricane Sandy gave “us the opportunity to look beyond ourselves and offer a helping hand to our brothers and sisters who now face a most difficult situation in their lives. Your correspondence proves your children are living this daily.”
