Promote a routine of prayer at home using some of the same prayers we use at school.
1. Before meals, use the "Bless Us, O Lord" prayer.
2. At bedtime, use the "Angel of God" prayer.
We are also saying "Hail Mary" daily, the blessing after meals "We Give You Thanks", the "Our Father", and will be learning the Nicene Creed.
At school Mass, we do not allow the students to put their elbows on the pews or lay on the pews. It would be helpful if you practice these things at weekend Mass as well.
We are also asking students to actively participate in the Mass. Responses, prayers, and watching the priest are necessary for the children to learn. Help your child become more involved in the Mass on the weekend!
