Daily Prayers

Beginning of Day:

Read from Classroom Daily Prayers Book

Before Lunch:

Prayer Before Meals

Bless us Oh Lord, and these thy gifts,
which we are about to receive,
from thy bounty, through Christ, Our Lord.

After Lunch:

Hail Holy Queen
(upper grades)

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we sigh, mourning and
weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us;
And after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus:
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.


Hail Mary
(lower Grades)

Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.

End of Day:

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.
