In his prayer, Fr. Nolan Que, CEAP National Capital Region Trustee, entrusted to God the faithful that they may overcome the challenges during this difficult time and receive consolation from their many worries.
“Calm the storm that is in us. Take away all our fears which makes us cruel to ourselves and to others. Grant peace and calm to our troubled hearts,” he said.
Fr. Que also included in his prayers the school personnel, teachers and students, administrators that those who have been infected by the virus to have a speedy recovery as well as continue to take extra precautions from Covid-19.
“Grant healing to our students, parents, and personnel who are not feeling well and might have been infected by COVID-19. Protect them from further danger and harm. Grant them strength in mind and body,” he added.
As the Alert Level 3 status on National Capital Region started on January 3, the Department of Health postponed the supposedly resume of the face-to-face classes as the threat of the Omicron variant continues to elevate in cities.
