A Prayer for the start of the Catholic school year

A Prayer for the Start of the School Year

Blessed are you, Lord God, Creator of body  and  mind  and  heart; you  have  sent  the  Spirit of wisdom and  knowledge to guide  your  people  in all their  ways.  At the  beginning of this  new  school we  implore  your  mercy: bless the  students, teachers, and  staff of our Catholic schools that together we  may  grow in faith, hope, and  love as we  learn  from  you  and  each  other how to follow your  Son Jesus. Expand the horizons of our minds, that we may grow in wisdom, understanding, and  knowledge; deepen  our commitment to seek  the  truth  of your  ways; and  enliven our faith  to reach  out  to those in need. Glory and  praise  to you, Lord God, in the  Church and  in Christ Jesus forever and  ever. Amen
