The Sign of the Cross  

prayer

In the name of the Father

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father Who art in heaven
hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil. Amen.


Glory be to the Father

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.


Prayer of Sorrow

O my God, I am sorry
that I have sinned against You
because You are so good,
and with Your help
I will not sin again.


Hail Mary

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. Amen.         


Prayer of St Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


TCC Prayer

Loving God,
you call us to fullness of life.
Thank you for the gift of quality education that is
provided at The Cathedral College.
We pray that you help us to make the most of the
opportunities that are offered to us to share our
gifts and so experience life in all its fullness.
May the years we spend here be not only enjoyable
but help us to grow as individuals in your image.
Bless the students, staff and families - past,
present and future - as they are the heart and soul
of this College.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
