How do I find the words to share How God has pulled me out of the darkness and brought me back into the light, Truly I say to you my brothers and sisters in Christ, the world is in darkness and full of evil; In this world that man has changed from the vision of God You need a safe harbor, a retreat from the storm, a tranquil port. God can show you a better way, the way the truth and the light, As Scripture teaches us, "no one comes to me except through the father" come and experience for yourself; a safe harbor, a tranquil port from the storm and the peace that God can give you.

Bible Study:

The evening starts at 7 pm with the RCIA class meeting in the Parish Center. This will allow those interested in learning more about the Catholic faith to have some extra time with the instructors before the Bible Study starts at 7:30 pm.
The Bible Study this year will be somewhat different from years past insofar as it will aim to present an introduction to story of salvation told through the books of the Bible.
We hope to meet about thirty times, so there should be plenty of opportunity to cover the material as well as to pay special attention to critical biblical passages.
All are invited to attend. Please, bring a Bible with you. For more information, please call the Parish Office 676-2482. Thank you.

Patron Saint Of Educators

Prayer to
St. John Baptist de la Salle,
Patron of Educators

Well-known Founder of the Congregation of the Brothers of Christian Schools, orthodox and prayerful theologian, you realized the very great value of competent Christian educators.
How great your wholesome influence has been! Make your followers continue to be Christlike models for all their students who in turn will edify others. Amen

A Prayer of Teachers

Lord Jesus Christ, imbue me with the knowledge of both secular and religious subjects that is necessary to my task on earth. Let me be equipped with suitable qualifications and also with a pedagogical skill that is in harmony with the discoveries of the contemporary world.
Help me to be closely united with my students by the bond of love, and work in partnership with their parents to stimulate the students to act for themselves.
Even after their graduation, let me continue to assist them
with advice and friendship.
Bestow on me an apostolic spirit to bear witness, both by life and by instruction,
to the unique Teacher---You, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Teacher's Prayer

I want to teach my students how to live this life on earth,
to face its struggles and its strife and worth.
Not just the lesson in a book or how the rivers flow,
but how to choose the proper path wherever they may go.
To understand eternal truth and know right from wrong,
and gather all the beauty of a flower and a song.
For if I help the world to grow in wisdom and in grace,
then I shall feel that I have won and I have filled my place.
And so I ask Your guidance, God, that I may do my part
for character and confidence and happiness of heart. Amen

Prayer for Students

Eternal Father, through the Gifts and Fruits of Your Holy Spirit, enlighten and perfect my intellect, will and affections that in all things I may be what Your Divine Wisdom intended me to be, a bearer of Christ to all. Illuminate my intellect with faith; strengthen my will with hope; and inflame my heart with Your Divine Love. Create in me Christlike ideals, attitudes, appreciations, and habits that will enable me to think, judge, and act so as to be like Your Immaculate Mother, a bearer of Christ to all.

Give me the necessary skills to earn an honest living; justice to regulate my will in respecting the rights of others; temperance to control my desires; and fortitude to defend and practice Your Way, Your Truth, and Your Life, thus being like St. Joseph, a bearer of Christ to all. Teach me to be modest in regard to myself and others; to be joyfully respectful and obedient to my parents, teachers, ecclesiastical and civil authorities. Thus, by Your Grace, will I grow in the stature of Christ, in wisdom and age, and be a bearer of Him to all.

Most Holy Trinity, make me realize that I cannot live without the life of grace that comes through frequent reception of the sacraments, through my offering with the Priest of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, through my daily prayers and through sacrifices on my part. Only through Your grace will I put on the image of Christ so that through Him, with Him, and in Him, I shall advance the Peace of Christ to all my brothers and sisters. Amen.
