Almighty God, You sent forth your Son as a beacon of hope for all people.
As a Teacher, He has given us the prime example of the importance of education. As disciples, we look to him for inspiration and strength.
Thank you for the many people who have dedicated their lives in service to our Catholic Schools.
Thank you for the teachers and administrators who sustain our schools.
Thank you for the parents who have given support and witness to the importance of Catholic education.
Thank you for the students who work hard to further their education. Bless all our Catholic Schools and the many people who advance our mission.
May our schools be a home for those who seek to grow in openness, faith, love, intellect and commitment to justice.
In your name, we pray. Amen.
