Our School Creed
This is our school
Let peace dwell here
Let the rooms be full of contentment
Let love abide here
Love of mankind
Love of life itself and love of God
Let us remember
As many hands build a house
So many hearts build a school
Father in heaven you love me
You are with me night and day
I want to love you always
In all I do and say
I will try to please you Father
Bless me through the day
Bless us O Lord as we sit together
Bless the food we eat today
Bless the hands that made the food
Bless us O Lord
God Our Father I come to say
Thank you for your love today
Thank you for my family
And all the friends you give to me
Guard me through the dark of night
And in the morning send your light
The Our Father
Our father who art in heaven
hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our tresspasses
As we forgive those who trespass again us
And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil
The Hail Mary
Hail Mary full of grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou amongst women
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus
Holy Mary Mother of God pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death
The Act of Contrition
O my God you are so good
I am very sorry that I have sinned against you
and by the help of Your grace I will not sin again
During this time of preparation, encourage your child to learn not only the prayers of the Mass, but also some prayers which can be said in the heart before receiving communion and after communion.
Before Holy Communion
Lord Jesus, come to me.
Lord Jesus, give me your love.
Lord Jesus, come to me and give me yourself.
Lord Jesus, friend of children, come to me.
Lord Jesus, you are my Lord and my God.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. (Seomra Ranga)
After Holy Communion
Lord Jesus, I love and adore you.
You're a special friend to me.
Welcome, Lord Jesus, O welcome.
Thank you for coming to me.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, O thank you.
For giving yourself to me.
Make me strong to show your love.
Wherever I may be.
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay.
Close by me forever and love me, I pray.
Bless all of us children in your loving care.
And bring us to heaven to live with you there.
I'm ready now, Lord Jesus,
To show you how much I care.
I'm ready now to give your love
At home and everywhere. Amen. (Seomra Ranga)
Parent's Prayer After Holy Communion
Lord Jesus I give you my hands to do your work.
I give you my feet to go your way.
I give you my eyes to see as you see.
I give you my tongue to speak your words.
I give you my mind that you may think in me.
I give you my heart that you may love in me - love the Father and all humankind.
I give you my whole self that you may grow in me,
so that you, Lord, may be the one who lives and works and prays in me.
