Elementary:

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

We hear in Matthew's Gospel (6:19-23) "Where your treasure is, your heart will be also"

Think of what you treasure… what you hold close to your heart that you just "love!". What or who is valuable to you?

Do you treasure: games, movie stars, clothes, looking good, music, friends, family, yourself? The list goes on and on of the many things that pull at our hearts.

Do you treasure and look for God?

How has the pandemic changed what you treasure and what you might bring back to the school community next year?

Let us pray:

Jesus, send us good friends to treasure as we journey through summer life.

And Lord help us be well and safe this coming summer.

We pray in Jesus' name

Amen

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


High School:

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

We hear in Matthew's Gospel (6:19-23) "Where your treasure is, your heart will be also"

Think of what you treasure… what you hold close to your heart?

Do you treasure: games, sports, movie stars, clothes, looking good, music, friends, family, yourself and the list goes on and on of things that vie for our hearts and attention.  Matthew's Gospel reminds us that where we put our energy is part of who we become and it's a question of balance in our lives.

If we treasure food to the exclusion of all else – that can be unhealthy …

If we treasure friends to the point of losing ourselves to have friends, that can be unhealthy …

If we treasure partying to the exclusion of other responsibilities, that can be unhealthy…

And so on … you already know this….

Likewise, if we treasure peoples, things and stuff to the exclusion of God, how could we ever hope to find God?

How has the pandemic changed what you treasure this year?  What will you bring to school next year?

Let us pray:

Jesus, help us become balanced people, physically, emotionally and spiritually

And Lord send us life-giving companions on this journey.

Lord help us be well and safe this coming summer.

We pray in Jesus' name

Amen

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