Catechetical Sunday – September 17
Please pray these prayers for our Faith Formation Catechist, Religion Teachers and Families for this school year.
Prayer for Catechist
source of all wisdom and knowledge,
you sent your Son, Jesus Christ, to live among us
and to proclaim his message of faith, hope, and love to all nations.
In your goodness
bless our brothers and sisters
who have offered themselves as catechists for your Church.
Strengthen them with your gifts,
that they may teach by word and by example
the truth that comes from you.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. R/. Amen.
Prayer for Families with students in Faith Formation and in Religion Classes
God our Father,
let your peace settle within the hearts of these
mothers, fathers, and guardians.
Give them strength and wisdom as they care for their children.
Show them how to raise their families with patience and tenderness.
Give them strength during the times of greatest
difficulty and help them recognize the little joys
that are part of each day.
May they grow in wisdom, understanding, and grace.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, who is one with you and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
