Catholic Education Week Prayer


Loving God,
You sent your Son, Jesus, to be our hope. We feel his promised Spirit at work within us; We recognize his risen presence among us as we gather in his name in prayer, and celebrate the Eucharist. He is the hope which inspires us to share as members of the Catholic educational community, in your church’s mission to announce the Good News to the whole world. We thank you for the gift of Catholic education. May it continue to be a place where Christ ignites within us, an abiding confidence, in a future filled with hope.
We make this prayer through the same Christ, our Lord.
Amen.
Dieu d’amour et de bonté,
Tu as envoyé ton Fils Jésus pour qu’il soit notre espérance. Nous sentons l’Esprit qu’il nous a promis à l’œuvre en nous. Nous reconnaissons sa présence vivante parmi nous lorsque nous prions en son nom et célébrons l’eucharistie. Il est l’espérance qui nous rassemble en tant que communauté scolaire catholique pour prendre part à la mission de l’Église d’annoncer la Bonne Nouvelle au monde. Nous te rendons grâce pour ce cadeau qu’est l’éducation catholique. Qu’à travers elle, le Christ allume en nous l’espérance en l’avenir dont il est le maître.
Lui qui vit et règne pour les siècles des siècles.
Amen.

Inspired by our Catholic Graduate Expectations, we acknowledge that the promise of Catholic education is within us, that it is a promise that we live out in our families and communities and that it is a promise that we proclaim in acts of justice and compassion in word and deed.

We make this prayer that we may live out the promise of Catholic education for many more years to come.

Amen. +

Prière pour la semaine de l’éducation catholique

Dieu de miséricorde,

Nous te rendons grâce pour le don de l’éducation catholique en Ontario.

Ensemble, nous allons de l’avant inspirés par celles et ceux qui ont nourri et façonné l’éducation catholique et qui nous précèdent aujourd’hui dans la foi.

Inspirés par les attentes et espoirs envers les finissantes et finissants de nos écoles, nous te prions de nous aider à reconnaître que la promesse de l’éducation catholique se trouve en nous: une promesse vécue et célébrée dans nos familles et dans nos communautés, une promesse qui nous pousse à témoigner de la justice et de la compassion à travers nos gestes et nos paroles.

En vivant cette promesse de l’éducation catholique, puissions-nous collaborer à faire advenir ton royaume sur terre. Nous te le demandons à toi, qui continue d’être présent et agissant, Dieu au cœur de notre histoire.

Amen. +

car c’est par ta miséricorde que tu nous appelles à te suivre dans la joie.

Amen.
