O Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Who in giving Your Church the duty and power to bring Your holy teachings to the faithful, said to the Apostles, ‘Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,’ look in Your mercy upon our imperfect but sincere efforts to carry out this divine commission. Just as, through the Holy Spirit, You imparted to the apostles the knowledge and the courage to go forth into a pagan world as the leaven of salvation, so also grant to the young men and women being educated at Columbus Catholic Schools the necessary knowledge and courage to go forth in life as the shining light of Your Truth and the salt of Christian example to save from its own destruction a world that is hostile to Christ’s teachings. May we, the staff, teachers, parents, and all the faithful, not count any sacrifice too great for the fulfillment of this lofty goal, but rather grant to us a true spirit of Godly zeal, unsparing self-denial, and Christ-like charity in the holy work of giving Your dearly beloved children a firm grasp of their faith and a desire to know You, the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Amen.”
May God continue to bless our Columbus Catholic Schools with families who live the faith with true joy!
Your friend in Christ,
