PROCESSION IN TIME OF EPIDEMIC AND PLAGUE (taken from the Roman Ritual)
Procession, Plague & Epidemic (booklet) leader to accompany the March 19 celebration of the Feast of St. Joseph in Traverse City
Everyone is called to live a “vital and personal relationship with the living and true God. This relationship is prayer.” – Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2558
Students at our schools discover many different types of prayer – public and private, group and individual, formal or spontaneous. In time, the children develop their own prayer style and rhythm, and gain both a sense of security and a greater awareness of our dependence on our good and loving God.
PRAY WITH US
We love to pray, and we’d love to have you pray with and for us. Join us for a Rosary, Adoration, or pray with us from afar. Here are a few of our favorites:
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.
PRAYER BEFORE MEALS
Bless us Oh Lord, and these thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from thy bounty, through Christ, Our Lord.
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.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among(st) women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
Oh loving God, I give you this day. All that I think, and do, and say. I give you my love, with Jesus, your Son. Today, I will try to love everyone.
Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commits me here. Ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide.
