Let us remember in our prayer today the administrators who shape Catholic education in our schools and throughout the province: our Senior Administrators, our Division Principals, our Directors of Education, our Principals, Vice-Principals and Assistant Principals. They are the people who are at work bright and early every morning and who stay long after we leave, creating the life, character and feel of our schools. They are the stewards whose example of justice, charity and compassion set the overall tone and spirit of our school communities. Let us be grateful for their commitment and ask for blessings to help them discern wisely God’s will for us in Catholic education.
United in Prayer and Grateful for Catholic Schools, we pray:
+ In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Dear God, we come to you today in gratitude for the work and support of our division and school administrators. With your grace, they have answered the call to lead our educators and schools so that our children might learn in a faith-filled and nurturing environment conducive to academic and personal success. Bless our school administrators with wisdom, integrity, a sense of humor, patience and the physical and mental energy equal to their tasks. Give them insights into each educator’s unique gifts, strengths and abilities so that they might engage each individual in roles that contribute to the common good. Accept our prayer today as an expression of our gratefulness to you and to them for their dedication in making our schools a central and vital part of our Catholic community. We make our prayer through your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
+ In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
