Dear Panda Community!
We know that there is a feeling of anxiety and disconnectedness as we put in place Remote Learning and Social Distancing. Our faith tells us that we are all One Body in Christ and one way to feel that connection (even when we are apart) is through prayer. We would like to invite you (and your family) to join our NDA community in praying a decade of the Rosary every morning at 8:45 a.m. until we are able to come back together at NDA. We will be asking for our Blessed Mother’s intercession and protection during this time of uncertainty.
If you are not sure how to pray a Decade of the Rosary, you can find the prayers below. If you don’t have a rosary at home, it is fine, you have 10 fingers! It takes less than 5 minutes and is a great way to begin your day before you begin your classwork.
If you cannot stop at 8:45 a.m. to pray at the same time, no worries, our prayers are connected no matter what time you stop and pray. Find some time during your day to take a step back and say a prayer. There are so many good ones out there – and don’t discredit your own prayer! It doesn’t have to be a formal prayer – just speak from the heart!
NDA Morning Decade of the Rosary

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, Full of grace the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death. Amen.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be world without end, Amen.
O My Jesus, forgive us our sins and save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.
