The parish keeps all educators and those on the front-lines of the pandemic in our prayers each and every day – thank you, you are our heroes!
As we continue to support one another as a parish family, we especially pray for all of our teachers, parents, and students returning to school, in-person or virtually.
This coming school year will no doubt hold many challenges. However, as people of faith, we remain confident that God is with us to meet every one of those challenges.
I, along with Dr. Laura Clift, Saint Bridget School Principal, and all of our dedicated, hard-working faculty and staff join together to joyfully welcome back our students! We all look forward to the excitement of a new school year!
Please join me, Father Tochi, Father Christian, our deacons, and parish staff as we offer a prayer for a New School Year.
Prayer for a New School Year
Gracious God, as the summer begins to fade, new possibilities lie on the horizon.
Bless all of those who are beginning or returning to their roles as teachers and catechists as well as those who lead and support them in their efforts.
May this school year be a time of grace and potential as they teach, share, and challenge others to grow in faith, knowledge, and wisdom.
Bless children and youth, along with their parents as they begin a new school year.
May their minds be open to learning and to the wonder of discovery and insight.
Be with us all as we embark on this new year.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
