Auxiliary Bishop Gregory Bittman is inviting all of us -- parishioners, parents, trustees, administrators, teachers, chaplains, and students -- to pray in a special way for Catholic education next week.. 

Tapestry from St. John Bosco Parish, Edmonton"The need to support Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Edmonton has never been more urgent," says Bishop Bittman. "We recognize Catholic education as a unique and excellent means of forming the hearts, minds and souls of our young people. Therefore, it is vital that we lend our support through prayer. I invite you to join with me in praying a novena to St. John Bosco over nine consecutive days, beginning Tuesday, October 13. Each day, we will ask for his intercession with our Lord to strengthen Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Edmonton."

Please feel free to share this prayer request.
