Back To School Blessing

Back to School Blessing
For all the children returning to school:
Heavenly Father, send your Holy Spirit as their guide and protector. Keep them free from danger and harm. Put our sons and daughters in the right place, at the right time, to receive your grace. Let them learn and grow strong. May the presence of your Spirit fill their hearts.
Help us to mature as parents and care-givers. Bless every family, O Lord.
We entrust our children to you, dear Lord, since from the beginning they are yours to keep. We ask this in the name of the greatest son of all, Jesus Christ. AMEN.
(per Fr. Tom O’Gorman).
