Together We Pray
O God of small beginnings and small steps,
You inspire us through a heritage that is rich in blessings,
You challenge us to grow, as we remember the struggles of our past,
You call us as partners in the Catholic educational community
To be inclusive of all who seek to learn in the light of faith.
We ask you to bless our work over the next two days
And may your presence in what we do, encourage us to dare.
May solidarity and togetherness be our strength.
We make this prayer, through Christ our Lord.
Amen
The trouble with not having a goal is that
you can spend your life running up and
down the field and never score.

Parent Pamphlet
God our loving companion, we thank you for
journeying with us during these past two days
and for the many ways you constantly care for
and nourish us. As we prepare to launch the new
Religion Curriculum in our school, we particularly
ask that Your Holy Spirit goes before us and
prepares the way.
We find strength and comfort knowing that you
make the journey with us. May we support and
encourage each other as we journey together.
May the work you have entrusted us to do be
well received, May the curriculum’s content and
its pedagogy speak into the hearts of many, that
they may come to know your more.
Blessing Tile
Leader:
In this time of transformation, when something is asked
of you as an educative and religious leader ….
May Jesus Christ, crucified and risen,
Be your inspiration, your centre, your strength and your
hope.
All: Amen
May you have the grace and wisdom
To act with compassion and justice in all things.
All: Amen
May you act always in a spirit of service,
And may those who work with you know that you
see and respect them.
All: Amen
May you treasure the gifts of the mind and the
heart,
Where vision and discernment draw enrichment
from the past,
Even as new horizons are embraced.
All: Amen
May you know the wisdom of deep listening.
May you know the supportive power of community;
And may leadership be for you a true adventure of
growth.
All: Amen
And may Almighty God bless us, the Father, Son and
Holy Spirit.
All: Amen
