The OECTA Prayer and Pledge are recited before events and meetings.


OECTA prayer

 

Creator God, we praise you, the source of all life. Renew our faith and guide us in our ministry as Catholic Teachers. Let us touch the hearts and minds of those with whom we work.
Lord Jesus, share with us your counsel, so we may choose
knowledge over ignorance, wisdom over waste,
peace over injustice, community over isolation and
service over domination.
Holy Spirit, nurture our growth. Inspire us to give birth to the creative powers within us. Let us come to the fullness of life promised in the Gospel.
Amen.
