O gracious God, we thank you for St. Matthew School community and for calling us to be members of it.
Keep us mindful of the presence of Christ in our midst and faithful to his message of justice, peace, truth and love.
May we be guided in all we think, say and do, by the wisdom of your Holy Spirit.
Keep our school united in your peace and love, and keep our hearts and hands open to our needy world.
We offer this prayer through Christ Our Lord, Mary Our Mother and St. Matthew our Patron.
