Return to School Prayer Service
As members of the Catholic Women’s League, we are called to pray for our communal well-being. Education is a life-long experience that helps students move from where they are to where God wants them to be. We ask for God’s protection during this process. This year, re-entry is filled with apprehension. Students, parents and teachers need hope and acceptance of their new reality. Together we pray that the Lord will be with them, guiding their journey with all the changes.
At the request of her CWL Council (St. Martha's, Lethbridge), Sharon Malec prepared a beautiful prayer service for them to pray as the children return to school. Sharon is a Past Calgary Diocesan President and currently serves as Provincial Legislation Chair. As a mother, grandmother and retired school teacher, she is always concerned for the wellbeing of God's precious children.
St. Martha's Council gifts this service to other CWL Councils with the desire that you will regard it as a living document and adapt it as you feel best serves your members and their families. They included the Rosary of the day after the Communal prayer, and their Spiritual Advisor, Fr William, gave a final blessing.
