Catholic School's Week Logo

Today we recognize our Students for Catholic Schools Week:

Prayer for our Students

Christ our Teacher,

You dwell deep within each of  our students:

In those who struggle academically,

And in those who excel; 

In those who seek attention by acting out, and in those

Who remain silent and try to hide from notice;

In those surrounded by friends, 

Give us the grace to know your presence in each of 

Them and to respond to their needs as you would to
