Each class period begins with prayer, utilizing both traditional prayers and original prayers composed by teachers and students.
Community Morning Prayer
The Providence community prays together every morning. Students, faculty and staff volunteer to share a personal reflection over the public address system, followed by the recitation of the Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and concluding with the Pledge of Allegiance.
Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Eternal and ever loving Father, I offer you everything I do this day: my work, my prayers, my play, all my thoughts, my time with family and friends, my hours of relaxation, my difficulties, problems, distress, which I shall try to bear with patience.
Join these, my gifts, to the unique offering which Jesus Christ, your Son, renews today in the Eucharist.
Grant, I pray, that guided by the Holy Spirit and united to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, my life this day may be of service to you, and to all you send into my life, so that we can continue to respond with love to the mystery of your call, to be your special people.
Leader: Heart of Jesus burning with love for us,
Response: Enflame our hearts with love for you.
Community Afternoon Prayer:
Before dismissing at the end of the day, the entire the Providence community participates in a short prayer. Through the following prayer, we continue to journey through our ordinary life experiences with a hope to reach out and renew the oneness of our minds and hearts intent on the Lord Jesus.
Leader: You have made us for Yourself, O Lord…
Response: And our hearts are restless until they rest in You.
Leader: St. Augustine…
Response: Pray for us.
