Faith Corner:   A Prayer for Catholic Schools Week

Thank you, Father, for the blessing of our Catholic Schools. Help us to grow in Faith, Hope, and Love as we are taught about You, Your Church and our own salvation.

Thank you, Jesus, for the blessing of all the parishes, priests, and Catholic School supporters that make our school possible. We are grateful for the long tradition of committed Catholics, especially the women religious, who began our schools and preserved them through the years, and also for those who work for its future. Help us to follow their example of Service and Generosity when it is our turn to preserve the Faith.

Thank you, Holy Spirit, for the blessing of our parents, principal, and teachers. We are grateful for the grace and wisdom You give them as they teach and guide us. Help us to grow in our understanding of the world around us and grant us the strength to make the right choices when the world challenges what is right and holy.

Amen.

Protecting God’s children is the initial VIRTUS training session required for adults who come into contact with children in their ministries.  The program covers the requirements for an effective prevention program. The training is good for four years. We ask that all school volunteers take the training.  For questions, call Dea Boehme at (805) 390-1260.  It is also recommended that parent volunteers be Livescanned for the school.
