Prayer of Consecration of Holy Rosary School

to our Blessed Mother, Mary

October 13, 2017

Most Holy and Immaculate Virgin Mary, tender mother of all, today we consecrate Holy Rosary School in Idaho Falls, ldaho—the buildings and people—to your Immaculate Heart.

We ask you to intercede with your Son Jesus to bless our school. May every classroom and hallway, the cafeteria and gymnasium, the offices, library, STEM house and playground be entrusted to your care and protection. May the love of our teachers and staff witness to God's love for us and draw all those they touch to your Son Jesus. May their devoted teaching and caring bring forth a bountiful harvest of knowledge and grace for their students.

Coming from varied backgrounds and walks of life, we ask you to bless every person who is part of Holy Rosary School. We ask for your special blessing upon Father Raul, Father Carlos, our deacons, and the members of our parish. Bless our principal Mrs. Van Pelt, our teachers and staff, our students and their families. 

We honor the memory of missionary priests like Fathers Peter DeSmet and Anthony Ravalli, who first proclaimed "with the words of their mouths" the Good News of Jesus Christ in Idaho, and Father E.M. Nattini. We honor Father Thomas Percell, who founded our school in 1919, and the Sisters of the Holy Cross who were the first teachers.  We honor the builder of our current facility, Monsignor Verhoeven, and Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the founder of the first American parish school. 

Blessed Mother, please protect each and every person and family who is part of our school. We ask for your intercession for their daily needs and the necessities of life. Dedicate us to the important work of nurturing and educating our young church.  Aid us in defending the most vulnerable and the poor among us. Teach us your own preferential love for the little and the poor, for the unwanted and the suffering, for sinners and the downhearted: bring everyone under your loving protection.

Oh Queen, standing at the right hand of Our Lord, arrayed in gold, watch over our minds and hearts. Enkindle in our hearts and homes the love of purity, the practice of a virtuous life, an ardent zeal to bring souls to you, and an even deeper desire to pray with you for the needs of our school and our Diocese.  Watch over and protect Bishop Peter Christiansen, all the priests and deacons and all the religious. Help them to strive for personal holiness as they work to build your Kingdom.

Hold all our lives in your arms: bless and strengthen our every desire for good; revive and nourish our faith; sustain and enlighten our hope; awaken and animate our charity; guide all of us along the path of holiness.

Wrap everyone in this school in your mantle of protection against the Evil One and please accept our entrustment, dearest Mother. We ask you to use us as you wish and walk with us on our pilgrim journey in this life towards your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

0 Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you!    Amen.

This is an adaptation of the prayer of Bishop Peter Christiansen as he consecrated the Diocese of Boise to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, August 15, 2016
