 DAY 1

MORNING PRAYER

Each year, the Catholic School Divisions in Saskatchewan engage in a week-long celebration of the unique identity and distinctive contributions of Catholic education during Catholic Education Week. This year’s celebration is entitled, “Catholic Education: Rebuild, Restore, Renew Together”. The five sub-themes for Catholic Education: Rebuild, Restore, Renew Together are: Rediscover & Rebuild, Restore, Renew, and Rejoice. Let us Celebrate Catholic Education Week. 

Gracious God,

You taught us that where two or three are gathered,

you are there.

We have been isolated from each other

and need communal healing.

Give us your Spirit

that we may reach out to form communities in new ways.

You call us to be in relationship with one another.

Sometimes our relationships need to be rediscovered and rebuilt.

Nudge us to rebuild the relationships in our lives that are significant,

so we can live in peace and joy

with one another.

Amen
