GOLDEN JUBILEE PRAYER

Our Father, we thank you for inspiring the missionary sisters of our Lady of Apostles to begin a school for young children in this environ fifty years ago. Lord Jesus, we pupils, staff and parents of Maryland Convent Private School Lagos, thank you for our past and for the many good things we have enjoyed as individuals and as a community. We also give glory for our present as we entrust unknown future into your hands.

As we look forward with the joy and anticipation to celebrate the golden jubilee of our great institute, we bring before you all the people in our society who passed through this school that your grace and mercy will abide with them.

May this jubilee year bring each one of us your abundant blessings and renewal. Hear our prayer and send your Holy spirit upon us during this time of preparation so that we may grow each day in the promotion of Gospel values. Make us sensitive to the needs of other children especially the poorand marginalised. We also pray for those who served faithfully and have now retired, may you reward them abundantly.

O God, as we celebrate our jubilee, we ask you to pour afresh upon our school the spirit of the risen Christ.

Merciful Father, we pray for men and women who offered faithful service and have gone to the great

beyond, may your light shine upon them.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen. Mary Queen of Apostles; pray for us.
