Elementary:

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

This past Sunday we celebrated the Ascension of the Lord when Jesus goes to heaven and promises his Holy Spirit to be with us forever.  Jesus is lifted into heaven and today we think about the ways we are lifted by Jesus in our everyday lives.  

How have you grown this year? Who helped you? Who slowed you down? Jesus calls us to be honest – even in those times where it is difficult – so honestly have you risen to become a better person this year?  Have you helped others rise up to be better people too?

In our prayer today, let us ask for God's graces to be people of honesty and courage who life others up.

Let us pray:

Lord God, protect us and keep us safe.  Teach us to be sincere and trustworthy.  Give us your courage and truth to share with all peoples.  Help us to welcome and include everyone we meet. 

This month is National Indigenous History Month,  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. On June 21 we will celebrate the heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis!

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 walking with all indigenous peoples as we reflect on the many faces of Creator God 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.

This past Sunday we celebrated the Ascension of the Lord when Jesus goes to heaven and promises his Holy Spirit to be with us forever.  Jesus is lifted up into heaven and we, in many ways, are lifted up through Jesus in our lives.  

As our school year nears an end we reflect on how we have grown this year.  How have you risen to new heights? Who helped you? Who slowed you down? 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 who life others up.

Let us pray:

Lord God, protect us and keep us safe.  Teach us to be sincere and trustworthy.  Give us your courage and truth to share with all peoples.  Help us to welcome and include everyone we meet.
