Support Our Next Century

Prayer

TODAY'S PRAYER is by Kristoff Alexander & Joseph Meehan (Religion 8-1)

As a faith and learning community we begin our day,

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Lord God we praise and thank you for the gift of this day and for the night’s rest.

Today we pray for the people that are suffering due to the major natural disasters in the Caribbean and Mexico. May God continue to comfort those who have been affected by the hurricanes and the earthquakes and may people come together to the aid of those who need it most.

We also want to thank the Lord for our health every day because we are fortunate to be able to wake up and come to school, when millions of kids don’t have the same opportunity.

Be with us Lord throughout this day, in our teaching, learning and all our activities.

May everything we do and say today be guided by gospel values; by the way Jesus would want us to treat one another as we are Called to Collaborate and Share Responsibility in Our Mission.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen

Blessed Edmund Rice….. Pray for Us.

Live Jesus in our Hearts…Forever.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
