New School Year September 2014
I know the plans I have for you,
plans for peace and not disaster,
reserving a future full of hope for you.
As we begin another academic year
we ask God the source of all wisdom
to be with us in all that we do.
Be present to us and all our colleagues and students
as we live the Gospel message and Mary Ward’s ideals
of Freedom, Justice, Sincerity, Truth and Joy.
May we bring peace to all who come our way.
Fill us with trust that you are with us
whether in joy, anxiety or sadness.
May our schools be places of wonder,
learning and peace where the lessons of today
prepare us for the challenges of tomorrow.
Guide and bless all in the year ahead.
We ask this in faith. Amen
