— Prayers —
Lord’s Prayer
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 that trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God,
The Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried;
He descended into hell;
On the third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
And is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting.
Amen.

Hail Mary
Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary mother of God. Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.

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.

Hail Holy Queen
Hail holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sigh, mourning and weeping in 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 merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen O my Jesus O my Jesus, forgive our sins, save us from the fire of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need thine mercy.
Amen
