Angel On My Shoulder
This is a unique service program which allows children to live according to the Gospel. St. Cyril’s students are provided an opportunity to help less fortunate members of our society. Pancake breakfasts, bake sales, and special dress up days allow “Angels” to raise money for charities. “Angels” also make an annual trip to Skid Row before Christmas to deliver blankets, clothing and basic necessities to those living without the blessings that are sometimes taken for granted.

The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi (Patron Saint of Angel on My Shoulder)
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury,pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
