Prayer for the Mission of Catholic Schools

“We, who are many, are one body in Christ and individually members one of another.”
Romans 12:5


Lord Jesus Christ,
we humbly accept Your commission
to “go and make disciples of all”
in Catholic schools this year.


Keep us mindful of the mission we share:
to teach the Gospel
in word and action;
to serve others without distinction;
and to create communities
rich in prayer and love.


Sustain us each day with Your grace,
as we give ourselves completely
for those You entrust
to our care.


We minister confidently in Your name,
wherever we are and in whatever we do,
that we are one in You.




Dr. Kathleen Cepelka
Superintendent of Catholic Schools
