Dear St. Francis of Assisi students and families,
Welcome back and blessings for the new year!! We hope that the break provided your family with some much-needed downtime and a chance to reconnect with loved ones.
God of all heaven and earth,
From the breath of your love came the creation of the world.
We are amazed at the vast beauty of the night sky and at the intimate nature of the love you have for us your children.
Be our daily star,
Guiding our lives to search for kingdom love.
May we always follow your light of truth in all that we do,
Forever trusting, hoping and believing in your word.
Lift our eyes tonight to see your eternal life shining brightly,
Leading us home.
