2016 – 2017
“Year of Mercy Blessing”
Lord Jesus Christ,
You are the face of the Father’s mercy to us.
We gratefully accept your call,
as Catholic school educators in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee,
to proclaim the Good News
by our living and our teaching
Where there is the darkness of doubt and ignorance,
let us bring the light of confidence and truth.
Where there is sickness, imprisonment, and death,
let us bring healing, freedom, and life.
And where there is hatred, greed, and violence,
let us bring compassion, sacrifice, and peace.
Relying on Your grace,
let us be Your face of love and mercy
to our school communities
and to all among us
who hunger for hope. Amen.
Have a blessed school year!
Kathleen A. Cepelka, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Catholic Schools
