BSM cares deeply about the spiritual and religious needs of our students and community members. To that end, it is important to have a place to find spiritual resources during this time of Extended Online School. So many of us rely on the faith community of BSM throughout our daily lives to find peace, comfort, and encouragement. Though we may not be together physically, may we come together in Christ during this unprecedented time.

Litany in a Time of Need: Archbishop Hebda invites us to join together at 11:05 daily to pray a special "Litany In a Time of Need." Tune in to Relevant Radio LIVE at 1330 AM. What a great way to connect with our Catholic faith while practicing social distancing.
Litany of Saints sung by the Crosier Fathers & Brothers - Fr. Kermit Holl is an uncle to Ms. Novak and used to teach English at BSM. He is third from the left in the front and sings some of the solo verses.
You Say by Lauren Daigle - This is one of our favorites at BSM and a good reminder that our identity in Christ is what matters.
You Are My Hiding Place by Selah - Back in November, we gathered together in the Great Hall for our Thanksgiving Interfaith Prayer Service with a theme of "You Are My Hiding Place." The meditation was a song by the same name sung beautifully by seniors Cecelia Braun and Julia Hoover. We can't repeat their performance, but we can offer the song by the group Selah. The song speaks of deliverance, hope, trust, and God's love...no better song to get us through these days.
Lean On Me by Bill Withers - Here's another one of our favorites that also seems very appropriate for us right now.
You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban - This song is a great reminder that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. When we feel low, He raises us up.
Faith at Home by Laura Kelly Fanucci - A beautiful poem of the blessings surrounding us and how we can better appreciate them when we come out on the other side. A fun fact: The author of this poem presented to the faculty and staff at BSM on the importance of vocation back in 2017.
