FAMILY SUPPORT COMMITTEE
The mission of the Family Support Committee at Christ the Divine Teacher
School is to support our students, families, and faculty who may be going
through a difficult time or transition, such as a death, serious illness,
or hospitalization in the family, birth of a baby (happy but stressful!),
job loss, divorce, or other difficulty. We aim to offer whatever support
we can, such as help with meals or carpooling, help connecting
to useful resources, or simply a card or a listening ear.
Another way we seek to provide support throughout the
CDT community is by mobilizing prayer efforts. A school prayer board
for our families’ special intentions is located outside the gym and all children
and families are invited to submit special intentions for the prayer board
so that we may pray together for one another.
Every family in our school is connected by the common goals
we share for our children. Our committed group of parent volunteers
seeks to reinforce our connection as a school family by reaching
out with help and prayer. If you are aware of a CDT family in need,
please contact Jennifer Oldenburg (firstname.lastname@example.org
or by way of note to the school office). Also, if you have an ill family member,
recent death in the family, military deployment or any other special intention,
please invite the school community to pray for you or your loved one by
posting your intention on our school’s Prayer Request Board.
