Going back to school for a new academic year can be exciting, nerve-wracking, or something you dread—or a little bit of each. Whether you are a teacher or a student, or you just want to pray for those involved in education, try praying to these 6 saints who were devoted to teaching and learning.
As we wrap up Catholic Schools Week, we’d like to highlight some of the saints who have had the biggest impact on Catholic education. These 6 individuals were fiercely dedicated to accessible education for all people, especially those who were most needy. The following saints (and one blessed) were wonderful examples of using their God-given gifts to reach out to all of God’s children.
