Traditional Prayers

Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen


Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, Our Lord is with you.  Blessed are you amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother Of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.


Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.


Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy! Our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley, of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb Jesus; O clement, O loving, O sweet virgin Mary. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.


Angelus Style Prayer for Children

The Angel Gabriel told Mary that she had been chosen to have a very special baby.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;

blessed art thou among women and

blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.


Mary agreed to the plan.  She said, ‘Let it happen to me as you have said.’

Hail Mary . . . 

And Jesus was born and lived among us.

Hail Mary . . . 

Holy Mary, please pray for us, that our love for Jesus may grow stronger every day.

Let us pray: 

O Lord,
fill our hearts with your love, 
warming our hearts and
brightening our way.

May Christ our Saviour bring light and life
into this world, and to us, 
as we wait for his coming.
