Elementary:

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

Families are important all over the world. Today is the United Nations International Day of Families.

Let us pray for our families:

Jesus, help us make our families

at home, in school, in faith and in the world

places full of:

praying

forgiving

peace

understanding

and loving.

May our families be the building blocks of our society:

Little communities of shelter and hope;

Little communities of understanding and wisdom;

Little communities of prayer and play.

We make our prayer in Jesus' name. Amen.

We conclude with the special prayer of Our Mother 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.

​Mary, the Mother of God …  pray for us​.​


High School: 

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

On this day, the United Nations International Day of Families we listen to a wise man's words:

Confucius, an ancient Chinese philosopher wrote:

To put the world right in order,

we must first put the nation in order;

to put the nation in order,

we must first put the family in order;

to put the family in order,

we must first cultivate our personal life;

we must first set our hearts right. 

We set our hearts right in our families.

We have a responsibility to set our hearts right … but what does that mean?

Being family at home, in school, in faith and in the world means:

praying

forgiving

seeking peace

understanding

and loving.

May our families be the good building blocks of our society:

Little communities of refuge and hope;

Little communities of understanding and wisdom;

Little communities of prayer and play.

We conclude with the special prayer of Our Mother 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.

Mary, the Mother of God …  pray for us.
