Elementary

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Yesterday we celebrated the baptism of Jesus – When he was baptized Jesus began his special ministry to the people of God and his baptism shows us he is part of the human family and part of God's family as the Son of God and through Jesus both families are brought together in love!

That must have been a crazy time!  Baptism sets our hearts on fire with God's healing love.

Yesterday too was the Memorial of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys, a Canadian saint who died in 1700. She is also the patron of our own St. Marguerite school here in the Regina Catholic School Division.  St Marguerite followed Jesus' path of unity and hospitality in her work.  Her heart was on fire big time!

Let us pray:

Dear God,

Give us fire in our hearts to build up

our schools and churches together

as one family of love.

May we share your love for all creation.

What guided St. Marguerite was the knowledge

that Catholic Education matters!

In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Empowered through our baptism and life in Jesus and arm in arm with St. Marguerite we move courageously into our day in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.


High School:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Yesterday we celebrated the baptism of Jesus – When he was baptized Jesus began his special ministry to the people of God and his baptism showed his solidarity with all humanity and yet also revealed him as the Son of God. That must have been a crazy time!  Baptism sets our hearts on fire with God's healing love.

Yesterday too was the Memorial of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys, a Canadian saint who died in 1700. She is also the patron of our own St. Marguerite school here in the Regina Catholic School Division.  St Marguerite followed Jesus' path of unity and hospitality in her work.  Her heart was in fire big time!

Sister Marguerite set out to teach. When she found children hard to reach, she founded safe Christian places for them. She spread God's word and in Montreal she made great community changes. God blessed her in her sacrifices for others.

300 years ago it took a huge effort to build a school with little help and next to no money, just determination, a vision, and a strong belief in God. Think of the difference St. Marguerite made in the lives of those children.  How could her example of service help us today bring people together?

Let us pray:

Dear God,

Give us imagination and courage to build up

our schools and churches in unity and love.

May we share your love for all and for the whole creation.
