Eucharistic Adoration

“I think we are familiar now on tv on our own remote that we can freeze frame . Exposition is the ‘freeze framing’ of the centre of the Mass when we participate in the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. Jesus gave himself completely to us by his death on the cross , and he prefigured this moment with his special meal with the apostles at the Last Supper.

When we celebrate and ‘remember’ these two connected events in the Mass it is called the Consecration . This is the moment when we believe the bread and the wine become the Body and Blood of Jesus. This sacramental change is called Transubstantiation.

It is recognition that God who is also called throughout the Bible ‘Emmanuel’ is with us and God being God keeps his word and is with us in the gift of the Eucharist or the Blessed Sacrament as we call the consecrated Bread, changed into the body of Jesus and normally kept in the Tabernacle in all Catholic Churches and Chapels.

Today we are demonstrating Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament by using a Monstrance , a precious holder of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

So now in the presence of Jesus we can acknowledge the gift of Jesus to the world at Calvary , and speak to him ‘heart to heart’ in the quiet of the chapel and think about our relationship with Jesus , and also all the relationships in our life and our journey to Heaven where please God we will then see Jesus face to face and understand the wonderful plan of God in the gift of the Eucharist to be present to us on Earth as a foretaste of heaven.”

– Fr John Paul

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.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace.

the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among 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.

Serenity Prayer- For Quality of Education

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

Courage to change the things I can,

And wisdom to know the difference.

The Newman Prayer

May the Lord support us all the day long,

till the shades lengthen and the evening comes,

and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over,

and our work is done.

Then in His mercy may He give us a safe lodging,

and a holy rest and peace at the last.

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;

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

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.


Prayer for the Dead

Eternal rest grant unto them,

O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May the souls of the faithful departed,

through the mercy of God, rest in peace.


Prayer before lunch

Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest

May this food by you be blessed.


In a world where so many are hungry, may we eat this food with humble hearts.  In a world where so many are lonely, may we share this friendship with joyful hearts.  Amen

Prayer during lunch

Round this table, here to pray

First we thank you for the day

For our family and our friends

Gifts of grace that heaven lends

Living water, daily bread

Countless blessings our God sends

Thank you Jesus, for them all

for the great ones and the small

When we’re happy, when we’re sad

On the good days and the bad

We are grateful, we are glad.




Prayer after Lunch

Thank you for the food we eat.

Thank you for the friends we meet

Thank you for our work and play

Thank you for this happy day.

Chaplaincy Team Prayer

Dear God,

As we gather here today please help us to work together as a chaplaincy team to support our school community. Please help us grow to achieve all of our goals.  Help us turn ideas into reality making our school community a more spiritually nourished place to be.  We thank you for your love, our friendship, our team and our sense of belonging.



Sixth Form Prayer

Lord, help us to have the confidence to explore our potential in our studies, 

and as we grow as spiritual and moral beings.

With your guidance, may we learn how to respect others 

and to earn their respect in return.

Show us a multitude of ways to express kindness 

and to share our sense of humour with others when they need it most.

Help us to have the honesty to acknowledge when we have misunderstood 

and to learn from our mistakes.

As we journey through this time in our lives, 

give us the resilience we need to overcome the challenges we face 

and to keep going when we feel that we are not strong enough.
