Chaplaincy Prayer


Lord, God our Father,

Thank you for our school community.

Just as you inspired St Francis of Assisi,

inspire us to work together

to spread your Word within our school

and across our family of schools.

Help us to create a community

where love shines through us.


Help us to embrace God’s creation

by showing others how to love and care for

our environment as Stewards of the Earth.


Let the world grow as we follow Your path

Let us bring peace and care to one another

and listen to God’s Good News.


May you guide us and our academy

today and always,

on a path of a shared mission.

St Francis pray for us.
