Elementary:

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

Jesus gathered his friends and followers together and they became his family. 

Everyone who belongs in a family helps everyone else by helping with chores and by bringing out the best in one another – despite the occasional scrap or argument.

Being part of Jesus' family means we look to help each other by sharing the gift of ourselves with on another.​

We pray: Lord help us learn to that we need you and one another to live happy lives.  Help us be open to new ideas, perspectives and news ways of living our faith. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Mary certainly had to learn God's new ways of being with his people in Jesus, so we ask for her prayers too:

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 continue our day with open hearts in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.


High Schools: 

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

In the book of Acts (5:22-33) we hear about Peter and the apostles being kind of "out there" after Jesus' resurrection:

When they had brought them, they had them stand before the council. The high priest questioned them, saying, 'We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and you are determined to bring this man's blood on us.' But Peter and the apostles answered, 'We must obey God rather than any human authority. The God of our ancestors raised up Jesus, whom you had killed by hanging him on a tree. God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Saviour, so that he might give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.'

When they heard this, they were enraged and wanted to kill them.

Many of us today do not fear speaking our minds and yet there is much anxiety among us about being judged for what we think and how we live. Why do we worry so much?  Peter and the apostles faced such anger that their lives were threatened – most of the time where we live, we have no such fear – yet some do. Why?

We don't like changing and we don't like to be wrong – none of us are perfect and we need Jesus to help with our day to day living. Jesus came to remove fear from our lives. 

We pray: Lord help us learn to accept our gifts and realize we cannot do or be anything we want – we need you and the gifts of others around us.  Help us be open to new ideas, perspectives and news ways of living our faith. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Mary certainly had to learn God's new ways of being with his people in Jesus, so we ask for her prayers too:

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 continue our day with open hearts in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.
