Daily Prayers

Students pause for a moment to pray
As a school community, we begin our day by praying together. Each month a different grade level (K-8) is designated to choose representatives for this honor.
 
Upon finishing our prayers together, the classes continue with special intentions and additional class prayers.
 
At 1:40pm we are daily lead in an examination of conscience, by two eighth graders. This is followed by praying the Act of Contrition.
 
Dismissal prayers may include a reflection, an entry in their Religion journal and/or prayer that is consistent with the current Liturgical Season.

Morning Offering
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I offer them for the intentions of your Sacred Heart, the salvation of souls, the reparation for sin, and the reunion of all Christians. I offer them for the intentions of our Bishop and all the Apostles of prayer, and in particular, for those recommended by our Holy Father this month.

Mission Statement
Anchored in faith, belief, and tradition Saint Brendan Catholic School seeks to demonstrate the image and likeness of Christ in academics, spirituality and fellowship within and beyond our school, so that all may come to know Christ through us.

"ST. BRENDAN… PRAY FOR US."

 

Mid-day Prayers:
 
The Angelus
 
The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary ……
Holy Mary ……
 
Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
Be it done unto me according to your Word.
Hail Mary ……
Holy Mary ……

And the Word was made flesh.
And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary ……
Holy Mary ……

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray: Pour forth, we beseech You, O Lord, Your grace into our hearts; that as we have known the incarnation of Christ, Your son, by the message of an angel, so by His passion and cross, we may be brought to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen

Grace Before Lunch
Bless us, O Lord, and these thy gifts, which we are about to receive from thy bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thanksgiving After Lunch
We give You thanks, Almighty God, for all Your benefits, who live and reigns forever and ever. May the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. (Use the right thumb to make a sign of the cross over the forehead, lips and heart.) May God be in my thoughts, in my words and in my heart. Amen.

Act of Contrition
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, suffered and died for us. In His name, my God, have mercy. Amen
