Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank you for St. James Catholic School.
We thank you for our families, our teachers, our studies and our friends.
Help us to serve and to celebrate our faith as St. James did.
Help us to do our best to learn all we can today.
Help us to be kind and good to others.
Help us to be safe at work and play.
Help us to reach out to those around us who need a friend today.
We want to do as Jesus did.
We ask this in Jesus' name.
