Elementary:

We begin our prayers today in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Today is International Women's Day, a time for people around the world to commemorate women's struggles for justice and celebrate their achievements. Much work remains to be done to support women in all walks of life.  We must never turn a blind eye to the past and current struggles women struggle through.

We pray:

God our Creator, your beauty and goodness is present in all women 
who are created in your image of Love. 
Help us grow in love for all women and men as equal images of your love for us. 
Help us celebrate our differences so that we may see the gift of your love in more people and places in your world.  We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.

Mary, the mother of Jesus, is a perfect example of a Christian disciple. Let us recite her special prayer:

Hail Mary, full of grace,

The Lord is with you.

Blessed are you

among women

and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

Pray for us sinners,

now, and at the hour

of our death.

Amen.

Arm in arm together we continue our day in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Canadians owe great respect to the Canadian women who made many contributions to our country.  These include among others:

Margaret Atwood – Novelist, poet, critic and essayist.

Kim Campbell – First female Prime Minister.

Roberta Bondar – One of Canada's first astronauts.

Emily Carr -  Writer and artist. 
Senator Anne Cools – first female African-Canadian appointed to the Senate.

We must never turn a blind eye to the past and current struggles women struggle through.

We pray:

God our Creator, your beauty is present in all women, both inside and out. Help us grow beyond our own prejudices of gender injustices, hatred and abuse.  Help us to appreciate and celebrate our differences, so that we may see the gift of your love in more people and places in your world.  Mold us into Your inclusive image.  We pray in Jesus' name. Amen

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

Pray for us sinners,

now, and at the hour

of our death.

Amen.

Arm in arm together we continue our day in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
