Back to School


As the new academic year begins we think of all those who are starting in education.

backtoschoolFor the young children who are entering school for the first time. Give them courage and understanding as they encounter new tasks and experiences. Bless them and encourage them in their learning.

For all students who are returning to school and to new classes, help them to do their best, to learn new skills and meet new friends.

Bless all students who now find themselves on a new journey heading to college, Lord, keep them safe if they are living away from home, and help them to make good decisions for their future.

For all teachers, those who are returning to education and those who are starting out as new teachers- fill them with Love, Courage, Wisdom and Patience so they can see the best in all their students. Help them to use their skills to encourage their students to do their best, but most importantly to help all their students to reach their full potential in life as well as in study.

Bless all parents a child’s first teacher, and all others who influence children throughout their lives, help them to always remain mindful to children’s needs and through your love help them to teach them all about you and guide them with words of wisdom to nourish their faith.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
