This Week at École OLPH

January 30 to February 3

Prayer of the Week: Be With Me Christ

The cross of Christ be with me;
The cross of Christ overcomes all water and every fire;
The cross of Christ overcomes all weapons;
The cross of Christ is a perfect sign and blessing to my soul.
May Christ be with me and my body during all my life
At day and at night. Now I pray God the Father
For the soul's sake, and I pray God the Son for the Father's sake,
And I pray God the Holy Ghost for the Father's and Son's sake,
And I pray God the Holy Ghost for the for the Father's and the Son's sake,
That the holy corpse of God may bless me against all evil things, words and works.
The Cross of Christ
The cross of Christ open unto me future bliss;
The cross of Christ be with me, above me, before me,
Behind me, beneath me, aside of me and
Everywhere, and before all my enemies,
Visible and invisible; these all flee from me
As soon as they but know or hear.
Enoch and Elias, the two prophets, were never
Imprisoned, nor bound, nor beaten and came
Never out of their power; thus no one of my enemies
Must be able to injure or attack me in my body
Or my life, in the name of God the Father, the Son,
And the Holy Ghost. Amen!
Protection from Heaven
The blessing which came from heaven,
From God the Father, when the true living Son was born,
Be with me at all times;
The blessing which God spoke over the whole human race,
Be with me always.

Prayers for Mme Lafrance

As some of you may be aware, Mme Lafrance was absent last week due to a sudden illness. She is on the mend and recuperating at home. She will be absent this week as well and we appreciate all your prayers and well wishes for a speedy recovery. At this time, please address any school matters with M. Morin and/or Mme Manon Marcoux-Jones directly.

We ask all of our OLPH families to recite the following prayer as a mark of affection for Mme Lafrance.

Dear Jesus,

Divine Physician and Healer of the sick, we turn to you in this time of illness.

O dearest comforter of the troubled, alleviate our worry and sorrow with your gentle love, and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden.

Dear God, we place our worries in your hands. We place Mme Lafrance under your care and humbly ask that you restore her to health again. Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge your will and know that whatever you do, you do for the love of us.

The grade 6 students also participated in the Flying Canoë Volant festival at the Cité Francophone where they learned more about Aboriginal culture, they listened to some Métis music and they danced the Red River Jig. Finally, they listened to Roger Dallaire recount his canoe voyage from Rocky Mountain House to the Hudson Bay.
