Lord God,

You are our teacher of truth, love and wisdom. Enlighten and guide us so we can achieve
excellence in our journey with our faith. Unified in your name, we seek to be better stewards to
one another.
Help us to work to our full potential as students, children, and as friends. Let us grow in wisdom
and reflect your image in all that we do.
Teach us to love and respect the dignity of our peers as we live the message taught to us by your
Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ. We ask you to pray for all who support us in Catholic education –
our parents, teachers , EA’s , ECE’s , custodians, secretaries and support workers, administrators,
consultants, trustees , board of education leaders and our clergy.
We pray that you watch over us as we continue our journey of faith and education. Let us follow
in your footsteps during hardship and our decisions. Continue to shine light upon your children’s
lives as we grow in your image. We pray that you unify us in faith and sameness.
Thank you for our community of faith and for the educators who guide us through your
teachings. Lord, thank you for giving us the opportunity to explore our faith, not only in school,
but in our parish community. Through you we are capable to grow in Christ.
Oh Lord, we ask that you keep us in your thoughts and bring us closer to you through your
teachings this Catholic Education Week.
We make this prayer in your name.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. +
