IF YOU ARE HOUSEBOUND OR SELF-ISOLATING AT THIS TIME, PLEASE USE THESE PRAYERS TO UNITE YOURSELF WITH THE WORSHIP OF THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH, YOUR PARISH.
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Catholic Education Week takes place each year from 16th November (the Feast of St Margaret of Scotland) until 30th November (the Feast of St Andrew).
During this Catholic Education Week, we are asked to reflect on how we recognize Jesus Christ as the Way, the Truth and the Life in our homes, schools, and parishes. We are asked to reflect on our own roles in the education process – at home, in school, in the local parish and in other educational settings.
The purpose of Catholic Education Week is to highlight the significance of education, not only for young people but for society as a whole.
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK PRAYER
Jesus our Teacher, in your love for us, help us to develop our own talents so that we may become like you and lead lives of goodness.
Bless all learners and all teachers.
May our Catholic schools continue to serve our families, our communities, and our country.
Help us, through our learning, to believe in you and to celebrate the life of your Church.
Help us to grow in holiness as we grow in friendship with you and try to become saints.
We make this prayer in the name of Jesus, our Lord. Amen
I love assembling with brethren and feel deeply saddened over this time of loneliness and separation from those whom I love.
I have preached to viewers via the Sunday online service.
They too longed to worship in the assembly and were unable.
I think of Paul in stocks in prison, singing with Silas,
but winning souls.
