A HOLY GROUND OF LOVING AND LEARNING
Like Jesus, receive and give the gift of love! Help others do the same.
Religious Education is a life-long endeavor: learning how to receive and give the gift of love according to the example and teaching of Jesus Christ. The catechist who serves our students is a parishioner who has an abiding personal, sacramental relationship with Jesus and strives to model Him daily in word and action. Our students will be empowered to do the same.
LORD OF THE HARVEST,
BLESS young people with the gift of courage
to respond to your call. Open their hearts
to great ideals, to great things.
INSPIRE all of your disciples to mutual love
and giving - for vocations blossom in the good
soil of faithful people.
INSTILL those in religious life, parish
Ministries, and families with the confidence
and grace to invite others to embrace the bold
and noble path of a life consecrated to you.
UNITE us to Jesus through prayer and
sacrament, so that we may cooperate
with you in building your reign of mercy
and truth, of justice and peace. AMEN.
