Aquinas Academy Parents’ Association (AAPA)

The AAPA is the primary means by which parents are involved with the Academy, providing many committee opportunities for parent participation as well as coordinating large fundraising efforts to support major projects on campus. By supporting the school through volunteering time and talent, parents also get to know other parents. All parents/guardians of Aquinas Academy students are automatically a member of the association.

Prayers for Health and Healing

Everyone is invited and encouraged to pray to end the pandemic for the physical and mental health of all.

Pope Francis’ Prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary for Protection

O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain,
with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that,
as you did at Cana of Galilee,
joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the Father’s will
and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us,
through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.

We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

English translation from

St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

St. Michael the Archangel, deliver us from all pandemics and disease.
