Novena for Catholic Education Sunday

03 November 2020

Appears in: Archdiocesan News

October 29 – November 6, 2020

We are grateful for our Catholic Schools. Let us unite in prayer that the Holy Spirit may intercede for Catholic Education throughout Alberta by praying this traditional prayer daily from October 29 until November 6, 2020.

Leader: Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.
All:      And kindle in them the fire of your love.

Leader: Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created,
All:      And you will renew the face of the earth.

Leader: Let us pray:
All:      Lord, by the light of the Holy Spirit
you have taught the hearts of your faithful.
In the same Spirit help us to attain our happiness in what is right
and to always rejoice in your peace and consolation.
May you inspire Catholic Education with the wisdom of the Holy Spirit
that it may remain faithful to your teachings and committed to living
the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Leader: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit:
All:      As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
