 MORNING PRAYER

St Mary Feast Day 

As we enter this time of Advent, and celebrate the feast day of our school, let us remember that in Christ everyone has a place in his Church, and that we are to help those around us who need help. 

Loving God,

Help us to see one another as beautifully, fearfully and wonderfully made.

Help us to look past the choices that others have made,

and to see them as you do.

Help us to reach out to the needy and to do your will.

Thank you for our spiritual theme of the Light of Christ,

and for St. Mary school, 

as we celebrate our feast day. 

Through Christ our Lord, 

Amen
