School prayers


Sign of the Cross

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

The Lord's Prayer (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 trespasses, 
    as we forgive those who trespass against us 
    and lead us not into temptation, 
    but deliver us from evil.

For yours is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory. Amen.


The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ,
his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell;
the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven 

and is seated at the right hand of the Father;
from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting. Amen.


Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. 
Blessed art thou among 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. Amen.





Prayer before meals

Bless us O Lord, and these thy gifts, 
which we are about to receive, from thy bounty, 
through Christ, our Lord. Amen.





Prayer of Praise

Glory be to the Father, 
   and to the Son, 
   and to the Holy Spirit. 
As it was in the beginning, 

   is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
