A Prayer for Catholic Schools

Good and gracious God,
        we pray that the focus and foundation of our Catholic schools
        will always be the person of Jesus Christ.

May we remember that we are called to work together,
        as part of your universal Church,
        to build your kingdom in our midst.

Let each of our Catholic schools, no matter how large or how small—
        whether urban, suburban, or rural—
        be recognized by its commitment to excellence,
        its efforts to form the whole child, its hospitality towards all,
        and its intentional development
        as a community of faith, collaboration, trust, and love.


Help us to view every aspect of our world through the lens of the
        and the teachings of our faith,
        and let every member of our Catholic school communities
        become a visible example of what it means
        to put faith into action.
