You shall not oppress or afflict a resident alien,
for you were once aliens residing in the land of Egypt.
You shall not wrong any widow or orphan.
If ever you wrong them and they cry out to me,
I will surely listen to their cry.

Exodus 22:20-22

When I was a stranger, you welcomed me.
Jesus of Nazareth

Let us pray.

Lord God,

to whom no one is a stranger

and from whose loving care none is ever distant,

look with compassion on refugees and exiles,

on displaced persons and abandoned children.

Render justice to the oppressed

and rouse us to do what is right,
that our society may be cleansed and made new.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God for ever and ever. Amen.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas, pray for us.

St. Frances Cabrini, patron of migrants, pray for us.

St. Mary Magdalene, loyal companion at the Cross, pray for us.

Mr. Glenn's Message to Students After the Election

Dear Students and Friends,

On Tuesday of this week our nation took part in a great exercise of our democracy through the popular election of a president and members of congress for the coming respective terms. With the mandate of the people, a new president has been elected, members of congress re-elected or newly elected, prompting us to now pray that God will bless and endow our new President and other political leaders with wisdom, right judgment, careful discernment and a passion for justice and liberty for all people. We must pray that the President and Congressional leaders will be committed to advancing the common good for the people of this nation and the world, and dedicated to protecting the dignity of each and every human life, whether they are Jewish, Christian or Muslim, Caucasian, Hispanic or African American, refugee or...

MCS alums Marc Day and Jessica Beebe are performing Maximillian Steinberg’s Passion in Russia. The composition was recently discovered in New York after being hidden for over 50 years. The woman who discovered the hidden gems in the wake of her father's passing, gave the manuscripts to Steven Fox, Artistic Director and Conductor of The Clarion Choir. After the choir recorded the piece, the U.S. State Department sent the Choir to St. Petersburg and Moscow to perform it as a gift from the United States to Russia.

MCS Artist Brings Home Multiple Awards

Congratulations to MCS Eighth Grader, Zosia Weglarz, as the recent recipient of two awards for her watercolor entry titled “Sunflowers” in the 2016 Greater Avenues Street Fair. Weglarz received the most votes in the People’s Choice Award category, and she was awarded the first place ribbon in the 10-14 year old category by the street fair “professional judges.”
“Zosia is that student who puts the most time and thought into her art projects,” says Choir School Art Teacher, Erin Mattes. “It is obvious that she wants to create meaningful pieces and each project is very special to her. I get so much satisfaction from seeing the creativity that the students bring to all the different projects we do at the Choir School, and I have certainly enjoyed watching Zosia express and develop her passion and talents as an artist. I was not surprised to hear that she won these awards.”
