The Novena for Catholic Education Sunday (Nov. 8, 2020) is a traditional prayer to the Holy Spirit. To make it more dynamic in the community of the classroom, the Novena employs a liturgical dialogue and the Glory be.

We are grateful for our Catholic Schools. Let us unite in prayer that the Holy Spirit may intercede for Catholic Education throughout Alberta by praying this traditional prayer daily from Oct. 29 until Nov. 6, 2020


Novena for Catholic Education Sunday

Leader: Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.
All:      And kindle in them the fire of your love.

Leader: Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created,
All:      And you will renew the face of the earth.

Leader: Let us pray:
All:      Lord, by the light of the Holy Spirit
            you have taught the hearts of your faithful.
            In the same Spirit help us to attain our happiness in what is right
            and to always rejoice in your peace and consolation.
            May you inspire Catholic Education with the wisdom of the Holy Spirit
            that it may remain faithful to your teachings and committed to living
            the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
            We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Leader: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit:
All:      As it was in the beginning, is now,
            and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
