O Lord, help us with your grace to begin, continue and finish this work for your greater honour and glory. Enlighten our minds that we may understand what we are going to study and apply ourselves diligently to the work in hand. Lord, throughout this day, let me be faithful to my duties, respectful and courteous to my teachers, companions and everyone I will meet. Above all let me never offend you by my thoughts, words and actions.
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, forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
St. Mary, bless us your children, look on us with love and motherly care. Keep us pure, now and always. Amen.
