Elementary:

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

Today is the last day of school for this year.  But our end began early this year as we left our school buildings and faith filled communities because of the Covid-19 virus. But we have re-discovered that our schools are much more than buildings. Our schools are made up of living stones and beating hearts, feelings and emotions and faith and family. In thinking about the end of the school year we realize that the word "end" is a part of many other words.

Like:

"Mend".  Sometimes it's important to mend some things before we finish.  We might need to mend some friendships which are broken, by saying sorry and forgiving each other.

"Spend".  How are we going to spend the holidays?  How can we plan our time so that we don't just watch TV all day?  How can we make sure we stay safe when we're not at school?

"Ascend". Next September we will all have moved up a class or maybe moved to a new school setting. It's an exciting time, and a sad time too.

"Friend".  We all have good friends here at school.  Sometimes we don't get to see them over the summer, which can be difficult.  How can we keep in contact with each other? 

Anymore thoughts on such words …?

Let's pray:

Dear God,

Thank you for our school community and the gifts we have shared in this very strange year.

Thank you for our teachers and our friends and bless all who will move on to new things and will not be back with us next year.

Let us take the time today to reflect on all the wonderful things we have learned.

Bless our families and homes during the holidays,
and bring us all safely back to school in September.

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.



High School:

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

Next Monday will be the feast of St. Peter and St. Paul.  St. Peter is the patron of one of our RCSD schools.
