St. Mary Catholic School Prayer:
You sent Your Son into the world to be the way, the truth, and the life. Help us to keep our school a place where we are proud of what we stand for and what others have stood for. May we remember those who have walked these halls before us and those that will follow. Help us keep our Catholic Christian beliefs an important part of all we do. Thank you God, for giving us the opportunity to attend a school where the Master Teacher, Chirst and His Word remains constant and is the foundation on which our lives are built. By your grace may St. Mary Catholic School continue to bring this good news and be faithful in teaching His way. In Your name, we pray.
