Fr. Curran is presiding. 
The Rockhurst University choir is singing.

Blessing of Post-Grad Volunteers
Are you a graduating senior entering into a year or more of service with a post-grad volunteer program? 
At the year's final 6pm Sunday Mass on May 6th, we will have a blessing of all graduating seniors and a special blessing of those moving on to a full-time volunteer program.  We want to make sure that you are included.

Email Cindy with your name, the name of the program with which you are volunteering and, if known, your placement.

If you aren't volunteering but know someone who is, please pass along that info as well!

student workers! 
You are invaluable and certainly evidence the reality that teamwork does indeed make the
dream work. 
Thank you for your creativity, energy and hard work throughout the year. 
We appreciate you!
For Finals:
A Blessing of the BRAIN

God, Creator of all things and of human intellect,
bless all students with orderly thinking,
curiosity for the work of your creation,
and a creative spirit in their studies.  

Help them remain focused.
Give them eyes to see the connections between their study
and its value for life and service to others.
Energize them and get their brains working.

Send your Holy Spirit upon all of the students here at Rockhurst Univeristy
to give them flexibility of thought and expression,
good memory and calm nerves,
the ability to organize their thinking
and comprehend theories and facts
that they may express them with flair and clarity.

Help them to overcome moments of discouragement
and to rejoice in their accomplishments.

God of Wisdom, in whom we move, live, and have our being,
bless all of your sons and daughters.
Bless their brains and every part of their lives.
