school bags 1To mark the start of the school year we had a blessing of school bags at the family mass on Sunday 16th September.  We asked for God’s blessing on all our schools, our students, our teachers and other staff members as they prepare to begin a new school year.

"God of knowledge and wisdom, we pray to you for all schools that they may be lively centers for learning, new discovery, and the pursuit of goodness. We pray also for our places of work, that our time laboring may be fruitful and enriching. As students begin the year, give them open minds and open hearts to learn and to experience more fully the majesty of the world you have created. May this year be full of promise for them, and for their teachers, as together they experience new beginnings and fresh starts. Enable them to grow in knowledge and wisdom during this school year and all the days of their lives."
