Prayers for Children
At the 2014 Vatican Christmas Mass, Pope Francis thanked all the children who came; and told them that "Prayer is the breath of the soul". He told every child to find a little time each day to say prayers, because God really does listen to our prayers; and that praying a little each day will make each of us a more spiritual & loving person.
Christian Meditation has been introduced throughout the school. Through Christian Meditation staff and children meditate upon the Aramaic word "Maranatha." This word translates as "Come, Lord Jesus." The school community spends time after lunch to have a Christian Meditation session. These sessions allow the school community to spend a few moments of silence with God.
Our School Prayer
St.Werburgh’s & St. Columba’s School Prayer
Thank you Lord for this lovely new day.
Bless all that we do and all that we say.
Help us and guide us to take care of each other
To share and be kind and to love one another.
We ask you to guide us as we walk down life’s path
As we follow in your footsteps to love, learn and laugh.
St. Werburgh protects us
St. Columba guard us
Here are some more prayers, just a few, that you are free to use, if you wish.
