A Message from Our Principal, Mr. Derbyshire

St. John Neumann School Community,

Welcome back! To help address some of your questions and concerns, I would like to share the “Diocese of Knoxville Catholic Schools Re-Entry Policies and Procedures.”

We are committed to using relevant information to make the best decisions concerning our re-entry plan. Please know that changes to our plan may need to be made. We will send updates if there are any changes to our plan.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions.

Prayer for the Intercession of Our Lady during COVID -19

Holy Virgin of Guadalupe,

Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas.
We fly to you today as your beloved children.
We ask you to intercede for us with your Son,
as you did at the wedding in Cana.

Pray for us, loving Mother,
and gain for our nation and world,
and for all our families and loved ones,
the protection of your holy angels,
that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

For those already afflicted,
we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful,
wipe away their tears and help them to trust.

In this time of trial and testing,
teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.
Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.

We come to you with confidence,
knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy.

Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen

As always, you and your family are in my prayers.

Bill Derbyshire
