School Prayers


Our School Prayer

This is our school, let peace dwell here,

Let the rooms be full of contentment,

Let love abide here:

Love for mankind,

Love for one another,

Love of life itself

And love of God.


At Our Lady and St Brendan's Catholic Primary School, the children are taught traditional Catholic prayers and responses through Collective Worship during different months or seasons of the Church. Our focus prayers are:

Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.



Hail Mary

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


Eternal Rest

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.



Glory be

Glory be to the Father,
And to the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now,
And ever shall be,
World without end.



Act of Contrition

O my God because you are so good,

I am very sorry that I have sinned against you.

With the help of your grace,

I will not sin again.



Morning prayer

Father in heaven you love me,

You're with me night and day.

I want to love you always,

In all I do and say.

I'll try to please you Father,

Bless me through the day.



Grace before Meals

Bless us o Lord.

Bless our food.

Bless those who make it for us.

And give food to the hungry.

And drink to the thirsty.



Evening Prayer

God our Father I come to say,

Thank you for your love today.

Thank you for my family

And all the friends you give to me.

Guard me in the dark of night,

And in the morning send your light.
