The students of St. Andrew School have committed to pray — along with their families — for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Participating students will take home a tangible reminder to focus their prayer — the younger students have a prayer bear, while the older students carry home a consecrated chalice. The families find a place of honor for these items and then pray together for the vocation intention. Pictured are: Father Norbert Mendonca, Bella Shavitz, Camillia Bordelon, Principal Molly Halasz, Charlie Glenn, Blake Sparks, Jack Coan, Deacon Robert Barlow, Jordyn Walden, Franny De Los Santos, Christian Diehl, Father James LeBlanc and Abigail Schnyder.
