Exam Season is fast approaching!! With that in mind, we have set up an area at the back of the Church to remind us to taketime to pray for our young people at this important time in their lives. We have a book available and we invite you to write the names of all sitting exams over the coming weeks... 

 As every parent knows, this can be stressful time for students – even the most well-prepared ones. We cannot sit those exams for them but we can support them with our prayers. 

As in former years a Special Candle will be at all Masses during the exam period as a sign of our prayerful support and encouragement.  THE ANNUAL MASS FOR THOSE DOING EXAMS WILL TAKE PLACE ON SAT. 30THMAY @ 7PM. 

All Exam Students and everyone who wishes to pray for and support them are invited to attend.

As someone once said…let us pray!

 

PUBLIC EXAM PRAYER

 

Lord, as I prepare to sit my exams send

your Holy spirit to guide me and be with me.

 

Thank you for the many talents and gifts you

have given me and for the opportunity of

education.  Keep me calm.

 

Help me to do the best I can on the day of

my exam.  Help me to remember all that

I have studied, to express it clearly and to

answer the questions as best that I can.

 

Give me peace, understanding and wisdom and be

with me today and always.  Amen.
