Let us remember…that we are in the holy presence of God.
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Thank you for the gift of education and for the gift of Saint Angela Merici
who dedicated her life to educating poor girls.
I’m grateful for the efforts of Saint Angela and all Christian teachers
who bless their students with their wisdom and care.
May these teachers feel your grace and know they are appreciated.
In Jesus’ name,
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!
