Dear young Claretians in the Child Study Center

School Year 2020-2021 has been a totally different year. You missed several opportunities of learning encounters in the actual classroom at the Child Study Center and in the school campus. However, you are still grateful. You can still say “thank you” with a smile.

You say “thank you” because you have been secured with much love and care from your families. You can say “thank you” because you were blessed with teachers who accompanied you all the way with much patience and joy. You can say “thank you” because you have learned something that would help you live the future with greater confidence. You can say “thank you” for many other reasons that only your heart can feel and your mind can grasp.

We join you today in saying “thank you” with a big smile.

And the biggest “thank you” is for the Lord, our God and so I pray for you:

Dearest Lord, we thank you always for having blessed us with every good gift especially the lives of these your children who are signs of Your eternal goodness. As these young Claretians move up to the next level in their journey of learning, may they always keep the light of hope as they face a world in pain and grief. Strengthen them with Your grace and protect them with Your love for You alone is more than enough for them. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen.

May Almighty God bless you and your families—the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
