From OUR Renaming in September 2021...
All learning must have as its final purpose to bring us to a knowledge of the truth and to the worship of the one true God. Today we ask God’s blessing on St. Rose of Lima Catholic Elementary School .
St. Rose of Lima, patron saint of embroiderers and gardeners, was a prayerful person who cared for animals, the poor, the sick, and the outcasts. She included everyone, no matter who they were.
St. Rose of Lima School Prayer:
God the Father Almighty, we are honoured that we are created in your image.
We are thankful for your forgiveness and love.
Like St. Rose of Lima, we can be helpful and loving to each other.
May we imitate her way of life in service to all.
Teach us to treat everyone with compassion, respect, and dignity.
Open our eyes, our ears, and our heart to learn, play and share together so that we take better care of the beautiful earth you created.
Help us to put You in the centre of our lives and devote ourselves
to You just as St. Rose did.
We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen
