Our school badge has a book to remind us of the scholar St Bede. He inspires us to persevere at our studies. He loved learning and loved to teach people about his studies and for these reasons, he inspires both our staff and students’ thirst for knowledge and compulsion to share this desire.
Bede died in 735 praying his favourite prayer: “Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As in the beginning, so now, and forever.” For this reason, we give thanks and pray the Glory Be at the end of every school day.
Prayer for St Bede’s
We join together in prayer as a community of St Bede’s to thank you for this
day. We are blessed with the gift of education, and we value those that will
help us learn today.
May we be inspired by St Bede to have a passion for learning.
Give us courage to love, respect and serve as disciples of Jesus Christ through
this day and all days.
By your side, I’ll always be and I carry the light for all to see.
Fides Mundum Vincet.
God of Love,
Your love is a light that shines in the dark,
a light that darkness could not overpower.
We invite the Holy Spirit to bestow courage upon us
and fill us with grace to reject bullying behaviours.
We pray for those who find themselves in darkness right now;
for those who choose to hate over love;
for those who choose intimidation over respect;
for those who choose to be passive over service.
Please touch their hearts
and let Your light shine upon them
to guide them to love, respect and serve as disciples of Jesus Christ.
We ask this in the Glory of God.
