Suggested Prayer
Living and True God,
You created all that is good and holy in your image, be close to us, your servants, who gather here today.  Be our constant help and protection as we lovingly reach out to welcome and embrace all your children, regardless of their abilities, in our parishes and schools.  Bless our children as they grow together in faith, knowledge and friendship and bless their parents and educators who guide them through challenges, who celebrate their special gifts and who encourage them to reach their potential.  We ask this through Jesus Christ, your son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the holy spirit, one God, forever and ever.
