Adapted for Primary School students by the 2023 Mary Ward Captains, Olivia Peranovic, Rory Mengler and Luke Ferraris.


God of love, who teaches us to love without limits or borders, to open our hearts to all.

Grant us the courage to be our true selves and fulfil our God-given potential.

Help us to be open and loving to all in our community.

May we achieve our common goal of bringing justice for all.

Guide us in our journeys to find our own voices and build friendships.

May we follow in Mary Ward’s footsteps as seekers of truth and doers of justice.

Inspired by Mary Ward, may we persevere to create change and leave behind the past.

In Jesus’ name and through the grace of the Holy Spirit, we say, Amen.
