Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time 23rd June 2024


Prayer as Children prepare for Summer Holidays

 

We thank you, Lord God, for all that was good during the past school year,

Both the things we remember

and the things we have forgotten.

We ask you to continue to take care of us during the Summer holidays,

Keep us safe from harm,

protect us from danger.

Help us to enjoy the long hours of sunlight and to be glad of the company of family and friends.

 

We pray for all in our school communities

– bless them for a safe  Summer.

And when September comes around,

May they be glad to meet together again.
