Elementary: 

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

Today is Halloween or All Hallows Eve.  It is the day before All Saints Day - a day in which we celebrate all the saints in heaven and ask them to pray for us.

It is a special day for fun and treats that celebrate Jesus' victory over death and the triumph of light and over darkness. Let us reflect on ways in which we can bring Jesus into our lives every day:

Jesus, you are my friend,

As I walk from house to house today,

Let me remember that you are with me

Even though I may not see you.

You are:

In the laughter of my friends and family,

In the amazing costumes and decorations all around me,

In the big-heartedness of the people giving out candy and treats.

In the kindness of those collecting funds for those less fortunate than us,

In the security of those watching out for our safety,

In the sweetness of the taste of the candy.

My friend Jesus,

May this day always remind me that you are walking with me

Amen.

[Optional:

Halloween is not so much about getting a pile of treats as it is about doing good and sharing good things as we remember God's sharing the good things of life with us.

Mother Mary, Jesus' mom, shared Jesus with the whole world and is still sharing him today as she prays for us. Let us close by saying together our special prayer to our blessed mother.

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.

With hearts full of good clean fun we go out into our day in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.



High School: 

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

Today is Halloween or All Hallows Eve.  This means that it is the day before All Saints Day, as day in which we celebrate all the saints in heaven and ask them to pray for us.

It is a special day for fun and festivities that celebrate Jesus victory over death and the triumph of light and over darkness and emptiness. Let us reflect on ways in which we can bring Jesus into our lives this weekend.

And we pray:

Jesus, you are my friend and companion,

As I walk from house to house,

Let me remember that you are with me.

In the joy and laughter of my friends and family,

In the creativity of the costumes and decorations,

In the generosity of the people giving out candy and treats.

In the service of those collecting funds for those less fortunate than us,

In the security of those watching out for our safety,

In the sweetness of the taste of the candy.

My friend and companion, Jesus,

May this day always remind us that you are walking with us.

 Amen.

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