May 1

Elementary:

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

We all are born into this world through a mom. In this month of May we honour Mary, Jesus' mom, or we also call her the Mother of God.

Today itself is also a special day as we remember St. Joseph, the husband of Mary, and Jesus' the earthly father. We remember him as St. Joseph the Worker as cared for his family just like our caregivers do for us.  Joseph worked hard to care for his family so we ask Joseph to pray for us today and for all people who work hard in this life to provide for their families the world and care for the earth.

St. Joseph, please pray for our families and all who work that they may make our world a better place. We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.

So, in this month devoted to Mary we pray the Hail Mary:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

We ask for blessings for all our Asian brothers and sisters as May is Asian Heritage Month in Canada.

We end our day in the name of the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit. Amen.



High School:

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

In May we honour and celebrate Mary, the Mother of God.

Today is the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, the husband of Mary, the earthly father of Jesus, and the provider and protector of the Holy Family. Today is also International Worker's Day and we recognize the value of human work and defend the dignity of working people while encouraging all people to celebrate the role of human work in God ongoing plan for creation.

St. Joseph is a great model of responsibility. He took his role as husband, father and provider very seriously. He was a loving man and a hard-working carpenter who kept God's commandments and cared well for Mary and Jesus.  In our prayer today, we ask St. Joseph for his help with all of our work and responsibilities.  May we realize that our hard work can be very rewarding and bring us closer to God.

In this month devoted to Mary we pray the Hail Mary:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

We ask for blessings for all our Asian brothers and sisters as May is Asian Heritage Month in Canada.

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