To reaffirm our mission as a Catholic school and to demonstrate that we are not defined by threats and fear, but rather by a God who is at the heart of all we do, tomorrow we will have a Eucharistic Procession and Blessing of Classrooms and Students. Then we will, as an entire community, consecrate Central Catholic to Our Lady of Guadalupe.
This Benediction and Consecration will take place during 10:10 (9:40-10:10 a.m.) The Eucharistic Procession will begin in the chapel. Jesus will be carried to each classroom. When all students have received this blessing we will gather in the halls to pray together this prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Virgin of Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas, we entrust to you Central Catholic Jr/Sr High School. Intercede with the Lord that He may instill a hunger for holiness in our faculty, staff, families and students. May this always be a place of love, respect and reverence. O Immaculate Virgin Mother of the True God; hear the prayer that we address to you with trust, and present it to your Son Jesus, our sole Redeemer. Amen.
If you are able to join us, you are welcome to meet in the chapel at 9:35 a.m. and follow the procession throughout the school praying for our students. If you are not able to be with us physically, join your prayers with ours from wherever you are!
“Our own belief is that the renovation of the world will be brought about only by the Holy Eucharist.” -Pope Leo XIII
