Campaign Prayer

Dear Holy Mother and Good St. Joseph, cover us with your protective mantels and lead us into the Sacred as we begin this prayer. We trust you will place it before the holy throne of God and upon His high altar and that He will receive and sanctify our petition.

Eternal Father, thank you for the gift of children and the parental right to educate them. You always provide for our needs. Please bless our fundraising efforts to reopen Holy Name Catholic High School. We ask for patience and perseverance as we pursue the funds necessary for our school. Please open the hearts of generous donors. We beg the intercession of St. John Bosco, patron saint of students and builder of schools, and St. Thomas Aquinas, Angelic Doctor of the Church, patron of schools and wisdom for students. Pray for us!

Thank you Lord ahead of time for all you are going to do. Holy angels and St. Michael, pray for us!
We ask all this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
