Weekly Prayers

Monday 22 January 2018.

 Yesterday was the traditional date for the Feast of St Agnes who was martyred at the start of the Fourth Century who sacrificed her life rather than submitting to losing her chastity. On her Feast Day, the Pope blesses several lambs whose wool is then used to make the pallium which is a special cloak or scarf worn by certain Archbishops and is a sign of their position.

Today, we pray for all those who are called by God. We remember those who will follow God at some cost or sacrifice. We pray for our Priests and Bishops that they will continue to be filled with the Holy Spirit as they lead us in faith.

Hail Mary…

The Catholic Student Network.

As a school we hope that St Ninian’s provides our pupils with an environment which builds on the work of families and primary school to support them in learning about and celebrating their faith and being solid witnesses in work and action. We hope that our pupils continue this when they leave St Ninian’s to further or higher education or to join the work-force.  The Church has set up Catholic Chaplaincies in most of the larger universities. These can be important for students who want to be involved or for those who find themselves a little ‘at sea’ away from the support of their school. The following links we hope will be useful to our former pupils and our current Sixth Years who leave us in a few short months.

Weekly Prayers

Monday 15 January 2018.

Martin Luther King, the American Civil rights leader was born on the 15th of January in 1929 in the United States. We remember this day as he was one of the Christian leaders who opposed the laws and attitude of discrimination and fully committed himself to non violence. He said “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend”.

Let us pray:

Father, may our human family not become separated from you by building barriers of race or colour or religion or class. Inspire us to recognise that we are all made in your image and likeness so that we may grow in appreciation of all people and grow in pride of who we are. Amen.

Our Father……..
