At this busy time of the school year, we formally acknowledge and pray for the Year 12s as they conclude their classes and move onto external exams. The College sees itself as the second educators of these inspiring, compassionate and remarkable young people. We join with their parents, caregivers, guardians, and families, asking God to bless them abundantly. During our Graduation Mass on Monday evening, this prayer of presentation was offered by a parent.
Ever-present God - You have given us our children to love and nurture into adulthood and beyond. Now, as we see their progress to the next challenge in life, may you continue to grant us faith and strength to be attentive and care for them. We proudly present them to this faith community. May you help us continue to assist them as they develop their sense of courage, perseverance, and hope for the yet unknown future.
May they find comfort as we walk with them, guided by the gentleness of your Spirit and your compassion. May they continue to grow in wisdom and truth as they face the challenges of the future. May they journey confidently and peacefully with the light of your loving presence. Amen.
