Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

God, as we begin this Catholic Schools Week, we pray for those teachers, staff, and volunteers who have dedicated their lives in service to Catholic schools. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
