BLESSING FOR CATECHISTS FROM THE CELEBRATIONS OF INSTALLATION AND RECOGNITION
Blessed are you, Lord God,
king and ruler of heaven and earth:
through your Son you have brought us salvation, and in his Holy Spirit, you lead us to all truth.
In your mercy and love, help these men and women who are prepared to help your people to grow in faith. Give them your blessing and cleanse their hearts,
so that they may proclaim your Word in their daily lives. Help them to be men and women of faith and prayer, guided by your Spirit and filled with your love.
Let them share their faith and love
with their families, their friends, their students,
at home, in the classroom, and in our community. May their words and their lives lead your people to stronger faith and love.
Through their work, may your kingdom come among us, and lead us to serve you each day.
Loving Father, listen to our prayer,
which we offer through Christ our Lord, in your Holy Spirit:
all glory to you, one God, for ever and ever.
