O God, You have blessed our nation
with a devotion to freedom
Through the ministry of Catholic Education,
you bring glad tidings to the poor and
proclaim liberty to captives.
Free your people from all that enslaves us,
and show us the way to full life in you.
May Catholic Schools continue to
nurture the soul of our nation by forming children
and families in faith, hope, love, and zeal for justice.
Through Christ our Lord,
