  3. 3. Opening Prayer God of all life and longing As we gather for the beginning of a new school year We give thanks for this day and everything that has brought us here. We ask your blessing on our new students and members of staff, May they feel welcomed and invited to share their gifts and talents with us. We ask your blessing on all who are returning May they feel renewed and ready for what this year will bring. Share with our whole school community the Holy Spirit that breathes your life into us And leaves us open to the ways of your wisdom so that we may become the people you want us to be. May Jesus your Son be the teacher who guides our searching and the bread that nourishes our hunger. We make this prayer in his name. Amen
