Examination time

The 630pm Young Adult Mass  on Sunday 4th June was offered for all those undertaking state examinations.  We keep all students in our prayers at this time.

Prayer for Students Taking Exams

Lord, pour out your Spirit of Wisdom on these Students:

Help them to remain calm, To attend carefully to the questions asked,

To think clearly, to remember accurately,

and to express themselves well.

Grant that they may reflect the best of the work

they have done

And the best of the teaching they have received.

Accept their best efforts in these examinations

And in the great test of life on earth.

May your love be upon them, O Lord,

As they place all their trust in you.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
