God our Father,
in baptism you called us by name and made us members of your people, the Church.  We praise you for your goodness and we thank you for your gifts.  Father, bless your church with love.  Raise up dedicated and generous men and women from our families, friends, and students who will serve your people in the church.  Send your Spirit to guide and strengthen men whom you call to serve young people as Brothers of the Christian Schools.  Help them be inspired by our Founder, Saint John Baptist De La Salle, and follow the example of your Son, Jesus, in whose name we offer this prayer.  Amen.
