Celebrating Our Seniors: Class of 2021

A Wonderful Class

Seniors Mba and Simpson Celebrating our seniors! During the next month, we celebrate our seniors and their many accomplishments while attending Gross Catholic High School. Throughout this time, teachers, staff and alumni pray this special prayer for our seniors:

Heavenly Father, please be with these students as they go where they do not know.
As they seek to grow in knowledge, we ask that they grow in faith.
As they start to conquer the world, we hope that they conquer their fears.
As they strive to find their place, we pray that they find You.
Please go where we cannot, protect when we cannot, give strength that we cannot, and bring them safely home.

Of course, we encourage our entire Cougar community to pray for our senior class as well.
