Let us ask God to bless us
and our new school.
(Moment of silence...)
All praise to You, heavenly Father,
Lord of all creation:
You have gathered us in this parish community
to praise You by our words and works.
Bless + this school which we have built
for the education of our young people.
Bless + our students and teachers,
our parents, board members, employees,
and all who promote sound education in our community.
May our youth grow in wisdom, age, and grace
before You and all Your people.
May this school always be a home of truth and wisdom,
of faith and good will toward all.
Through the prayers of St. N.,
may this school help our community,
and build Your kingdom of justice, light, and peace.
listen to our prayer,
which we offer through Christ our Lord,
in Your Holy Spirit:
all glory to You, one God, for ever and ever.
