Prayer is a way to remember every day what God has given us and to thank him for those gifts. The book of Lamentations reminds us that, “His mercy is new every morning,” (Lam. 3:22-23). As students begin each day prayer allows them to begin again to serve the Lord whole-heartedly and strive to learn all that they can about His incredible universe and his deep love for each of us.
Students start and end each day at Overbrook School with prayer. Overbrook students attend Mass each Friday morning as well.
