Elementary:

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

Today is the feast of St. Peter and St. Paul.

St. Peter is the patron of Our St. Peter's School here is Regina and St. Paul is the number one fan of Jesus and the patron of the Anglican Cathedral in Regina.

Peter, an ordinary guy, was a married fisherman who Jesus called to be a disciple. Jesus told Peter that he was the rock on which the new community of Jesus' followers would be built.

Paul was a Roman citizen who was born in Tarsus.  Early on he was against the  Christians and then he met the Risen Jesus and was transformed into becoming a powerful follower of Jesus.

Peter and Paul are good examples of what it means to follow Jesus when it is easy to do and when it is not so easy to do.

Here is Mark's (Mark 1:16-20) description of Jesus calling the first disciples.

As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen.  And Jesus said to them, "Follow me and I will make you fish for people."  And immediately they left their nets and followed him.  As he went a little further, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets.

Immediately he called them and they followed him.

The Gospel of the Lord.   

[Response]Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus calls ordinary people like each of us to be his followers, all we need to do is follow Jesus the best we can.

We pray:

Dear God,

Give us the courage to follow of Jesus.

Jesus, You walk with us always, so we can ask your help

when following your love is challenging.

Help us be disciples through the summer.

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 begin our prayer, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.​

Today is the feast of St. Peter and St. Paul.

St. Peter is the patron of our St. Peter's School here is Regina and St. Paul is the number one fan of Jesus and the patron of the Anglican Cathedral in Regina.

Peter, a married fisherman, was called by Jesus called to be a disciple. Jesus told Peter that he was the rock on which the community would be built.

Paul was a Roman citizen who was born in Tarsus. Early on he persecuted the Christians and upon encountering the Risen Jesus was transformed to be a follower of Jesus.

Both these ordinary people became solid followers of Jesus. They are good examples of the "cost" of discipleship and what it means to follow Jesus when it is easy to do and when it is a challenge in facing the skeptical world.

Here is Mark's (Mark 1:16-20) description of Jesus calling the first disciples.

As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen.  And Jesus said to them, "Follow me and I will make you fish for people."  And immediately they left their nets and followed him.  As he went a little further, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets.

Immediately he called them and they followed him.

Let us pray:

Dear God,

And so we can ask your help when it is a challenge to follow Jesus.

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

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