Catholic Schools Week

The Week will run from Sunday 29th January to Friday 3rd February.  All the children in St. Oliver’s School will come to Mass here at 10.00 a.m. on Wednesday 1st February.

Let us pray for all who are involved in our Catholic Schools.

Father,  Thank you for all those men and women who have given their talents to educating our young people.

Through the challenges they encounter each day, lead them to an ever deeper appreciation of the sacred duty to which you have called them.

We give thanks for the invaluable work of all those who contribute to the efficient running of our schools; support staff; cleaning staff, kitchen staff; maintenance staff; Boards of Management and chaplains.  We thank them for their hard work and dedication and we pray that they may continue to work in support of our schools.

Thank you for all those who lead our Catholic schools.

May they be people of integrity so that they can be witnesses as well as teachers. We pray that the schools they lead will become places where our young people can experience your love in their lives.

Thank you for our Catholic schools.

Help us to pray without ceasing, to work without wavering and to give without grudging in order to ensure the future of Catholic education for all our children.

We make this prayer through your Son, Jesus Christ, our teacher and our Lord, Amen.                                             Catholic Education Service
