On May 28 at our St. Andrew-St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School Mass for the 6th, 7th and 8th graders, we blessed three of our teachers who are making pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
We give you thanks for those who teach us along the way.
We give you thanks, O God, for those who teach us about you.
We give you thanks, O God, for those who teach us about right and wrong, and what it means to be Christian and what it means to be Catholic.
We give you thanks, O God, for these women who are spiritual mothers to all of their students.
And as they set out on their pilgrimage to the Holy Land, O God, we ask that you bless Sharon John, Abby William and Christy Earl. Keep them healthy. Keep them safe.
On this pilgrimage, O God, may they keep hope within themselves and be hope for someone else.
Draw them ever and ever more closer to yourself, O God, through your son, Jesus, and in the Holy Spirit. We give you praise now and forever. Amen.
