Chaplaincy End Of Term Prayer For Students
Fr Alan Whelan MSC and Mrs Mary Benham, our wonderful Chaplaincy Team, share this End of Term Prayer for Students with us:
God of all beginnings and endings,
We praise and thank you for the gift of this academic year.
It has been a time filled with grace and blessings,
A time of home learning and its many challenges
A time of opportunities, joys and sorrows.
The days have passed so quickly, Lord.
The weeks, the months, the seasons and the holidays.
The exams, the assemblies, the extracurricular activities,
The travelling to and from school.
All have come forth from your hand.
Now give us the rest and refreshment we need this summer.
With family and friends may we appreciate their love.
Let our efforts of this past year bear fruit.
Bring all of our plans to a joyful conclusion,
And bless us, according to your will,
With the fulfilment of our summer hopes and dreams.
Watch over us in the weeks of rest ahead,
And guide each day as you have done this past year.
Help us return to school with a new spirit and a new energy.
Refreshed for the new challenges ahead, the new friends to be made.
May we continue to grow
In age, wisdom, knowledge and grace
All the days of our lives.
