Prayer to Blessed Jane d’Aza, Patroness of the Dominican Parents’ Club
Blessed Jane, as a parent, you nurtured and cared for your children with great love and attention to their physical and spiritual growth. You spent your days seeking out and helping the poor and needy with your children at your side. Give us your generosity and inner-strength. Help us, like you, to guide our children to live lives that are rooted in the Gospel and spent in loving care of others. We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

The Purpose of St. Mary’s Dominican High School Parents’ Club shall be:
- To cooperate with St. Mary’s Dominican High School in promoting those activities intended for the welfare of the students, including fundraising for the benefit of the school and the students, limited donations to approved non-profit charities, and the advancement of the school;
- To offer, through well-planned programs, information of particular interest to parents and guardians;
- To encourage Dominican Catholic values and foster family life.
Parents or guardians of students currently enrolled in St. Mary’s Dominican High School comprise the membership.
An invitation is extended to all parents and grandparents to spend an hour in prayer and reflection before the Blessed Sacrament in the Adoration Chapel. Every Thursday from 7:30 am to 8:30 am we will have an opportunity to pray and be with God in the quiet of our hearts. The rosary will be recited at 8:00 am. Please contact Kathy Giler with the date you are able to come and spend an hour in adoration. Call or e-mail Kathy at 258-8847 (cell) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
