The OCSTA has published the Advance Kit and other resources in preparation for 2019 Catholic Education Week.
We come before you in this season of Advent, and always,
to pray for the gift of patience as we wait for you to come to us anew.
Fill our hearts with steadfast knowledge that you will be available to us in our need,
that all we have to do is call upon you, and you are there.
May we witness your faithful love to everyone we encounter this day.
We ask for the grace to “bear with one another” (Colossians 3:13)
as we wait for Jesus to be made visible in our hearts and in our lives.
