Thanks for an awesome fall semester!

Have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful break!

A special CONGRATULATIONS to all our Miami Seniors Graduating December 15th - May God Bless you in your new beginnings!

GOOD LUCK ON FINALS!

During Finals Week, the student lounge (lounge entrance is located behind the Church!)

will continue to be open 24 hours a day for students to use to study for exams.  

We invite all of you to make use of this space. Brain food is provided!

A Prayer Before Examinations:

Lord, it seems as though our lives

are one test after another,

weighing us in somebody’s balance.

Save us from taking the coming tests

too seriously or too lightly,

but grant that we may reflect the best of the work we’ve done

and the best of the teaching we’ve received;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen

- John W. Vannorsdall
