High School: Grades 10th – 12th Theology of the Body (Ascension Press) With the high school group, in particular, we understand the need for the youth to have an open and honest platform to discuss the videos and text of the program as well as as an informed and sensitive teacher. Therefore, this class will meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:45 in person at Shepherd’s Gate.    All diocesan guidelines will be followed for the safety of our youth and teachers.

I arise today
Through God's strength:
God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me, God's eye to look before me, God's ear to hear me, God's word to speak for me, God's hand to guard me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me, God's host to save me

Christ to shield me today
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
