ROSARY IN MAY AND OCTOBER
During May and October children and parents are given the opportunity to pray a decade of the rosary in the mornings at 9.00am.
All involved felt it was a quiet and prayerful time, a wonderful start to the day.
Good morning dear father I give you this day all that I think and do and say I want to join in with all that is done by Jesus christ my dearest son. Amen
Grace before meals
Bless us O lord as we sit together, Bless the food that we eat today,Bless the hands that made the food, Bless us O lord. Amen
End of day prayer
At the end of the day let us knee and say, Thank you Lord for our work and play, I'll try to be good I know that I should, thats my prayer at the end of the day.
School Hymn - Saint Joseph, God has chosen you
1.Saint Joseph, God has chosen you, to keep his Church from harm. So hold the church as once you held the Christ child on your arm.
2.Saint Joseph, God has given you all workers for your own. Teach them to do the best they can with steel and wood and stone.
3.Saint Joseph, when you pray for me, pray to the Three-in-one, but talk in human words with him who let you call him son.
We have been learning about Pentecost and that the Holy Spirit is within us when our soul is in a state of grace. We have learnt a prayer to the Holy Spirit.
O Come Holy Spirit
Fill the hearts of your faithful
And enkindle in them the fire of your love
Send forth your Spirit
And they shall be created.
THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE: NEW RE SCHEME
CLASS PRAYER BOOKS
Each class has a prayer book which goes home every night with a different child. This encourages the link between home and school. In our school community we think it is important to pray together. The children read out their prayers every Monday morning in assembly.
