Let Us Gather: Prayer Services for Catholic Schools and Assemblies by Deborah McCann

Sharing feasts and fears, praise and petition with others helps build up a school faith community. Catholic schools are often searching for ways to help children of all ages pray together and share faith. Here is a valuable resource that fits the bill. In Let Us Gather: Prayer Services for Catholic Schools and Assemblies, Deborah McCann offers 30 prayer services for various seasons, occasions, and celebrations. Designed especially for Catholic school assemblies, these services include prayers for times of blessing, for Catholic Schools Week, for graduation, for those preparing to celebrate the sacraments, and much more. The prayers follow a simple format: a call to prayer, a reading from Scripture, intercessions, and a closing prayer. There are intercessions for each grade level from pre-K through 8. These services can be used as is or as a starting point for a school's own celebrations.
