Let us continue to pray for our country and our world during this COVID-19 pandemic. We remember our Marianist Family members who have loved ones who are ill with the virus and those who mourn the loss of a loved one from the virus. We pray for all those who are ministering on the frontlines and those sheltering-in-place during this challenging time.
