We give thanks for this our school, St Mary's.
We ask that you bless us and make this a place of love, unity and respect.
As we marvel at your creation, Lord,
Stir up in us a thirst for knowledge, a hunger for truth and the strength and courage to do your will,
that we may live lives full of goodness and, like Mary, be obedient to your calling.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
