By the the end of Yr 3 – which is the First Communion year for many children – we hope that each of the children will have learnt the following off by heart:
Act of Faith
O my God, I believe in You, and all that Your Church teaches, because You have said it, and Your Word is true.
Act of Hope
O my God, I hope in You for grace and for glory, because of Your promises, our mercy, and Your power.
Act of Charity
O my God, because You are so good, I love You with all my heart, and for Your sake I love my neighbour as myself.
O my Jesus, through the most pure Heart of Mary, I offer You all the prayers, works and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of Your Divine Heart.
Grace before meals
Bless us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts which we are about to receive from Thy bounty. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
