Elementary:

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

Today we remember St. Justin Martyr, patron saint of speakers and philosophers. A philosopher is someone who thinks about thinking. We ask St. Justin to pray for us so we can be people who can make good decisions in our lives.

When we receive a gift from someone, we generally say thank-you. This coming Sunday we say a big thank-you to God for the gift of Jesus in the Eucharist.  This celebration is called: The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. The word Eucharist means "giving -thanks" and for us this day it means giving thanks to God.

As our school year nears an end think of something or someone that you can thank God for and say a little prayer quietly to yourself thanking God for that person or thing.

We pray:

God, you choose us to be Your children.  We thank you for your love for us. Please protect us and keep us safe.  Teach us to be honest and trustworthy. 

We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.

This month is National Indigenous History Month it is a time to acknowledge and pray for the Indigenous peoples of Canada, to honour Indigenous traditions and to celebrate Indigenous cultures. It is an opportunity to reflect on the gifts of our present day First Nation, Métis and Inuit communities, and their hopes for the future.​

Let us conclude our prayers with the words of the prophet Micah:

May we act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God. (Micah 6:8)

We continue our day with St. Justin and all indigenous peoples as we reflect deeply our Creator God love for each of us in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Amen​


High School:

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

Today is the Feast day of St. Justin Martyr, patron saint of speakers and philosophers. A philosopher is someone who offers views or theories on profound questions in ethics, physics, logic, and other related fields. Crazy thinking stuff!

We ask St. Justin to pray for clear thinking and good reason in our lives.

This Sunday is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ – A.K.A.  the Feast of Corpus Christi.  This is a joyful celebration of the great gift of the Eucharist.

As our school year nears an end we reflect on how we have grown this year.  Jesus calls us to be honest – even in those times where it is difficult – so honestly have you become a better person this year?  Have you helped others become better people too?

In our prayer today, let us ask for guidance to be people of integrity and honesty.

Let us pray:

Lord God, you have chosen us to be Your faithful servants.  Protect us and keep us safe.  Teach us to be sincere and trustworthy.  Give us courage to tell the truth even when we know it is difficult.  Help us to welcome and include everyone we meet. 

This month is National Indigenous History Month it is a time to acknowledge and pray for the Indigenous peoples of Canada, to honour Indigenous heritage and to celebrate Indigenous cultures. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the gifts of present day First Nation, Métis and Inuit communities, and their hopes for the future.

Let us conclude our prayers with the words of the prophet Micah:

May we act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God. (Micah 6:8)

We continue our day with St. Justin and all indigenous peoples as we reflect on the many different ways our Creator God calls to us in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
