Elementary:​

We open our prayer, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Today is National Indigenous Peoples Day in Canada a celebration of Indigenous Peoples' culture and heritage. This date was chosen because it corresponds to the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and because for generations, many Indigenous Peoples' groups have celebrated their culture and heritage at this time of year and today we rejoice with them and learn from their wisdom.

Let us pray …

O Great Creator,

we give praise and thanks to You

for our lives and world.

You make all things new and good,

and you invite your peoples throughout creation

to receive and share all that is good with each other. ​

Thank you for how wonderfully and intimately

You share Your life with us all.

Likewise, we seek deepening relationships

with each other and all Creation.

We commit to live and work with one another

– our families; our communities;

all cultures, nations, and peoples

– in union with Mary, all the Saints,

and our Grandfathers and Grandmothers

who have gone before us and inspire us.

We thank Your Great Holy Spirit

for the great variety of gifts and talents

You give Your people,

and we commit to always using Your blessings

to help one another and all Creation.

Let us pray together by saying the words of the prophet Micah:

May we act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God.

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