St Francis Braintree

Religious Focus

Throughout the year, we focus on the events of the liturgical year and this forms the basis of collective worship both in class and during assemblies.  Mass is said in school, once a month, and  involves children from all year groups leading different aspects of the liturgy.  

 

Prayer of St Francis

 Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love.

Where there is injury, pardon.

Where there is discord, unity.

Where there is doubt, faith.

Where there is error, truth.

Where there is despair, hope.

Where there is sadness, joy.

Where there is darkness, light.

 O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek

To be consoled as to console.

To be understood as to understand.

To be loved as to love.

 For It is in giving that we receive.

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.

It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
