Grace before lunch
We pause for a moment and think about the food you are about to eat or maybe you have already eaten it and where it has come from before using one of the prayers below today.
For food in a world where many walk in hunger;
For faith in a world where many walk in fear;
For friends in a world where many walk alone;
We give you thanks, O Lord.
As a Catholic School, and a Christian community, we pause before our lunch to give thanks for the food we are about to eat, for the hands that made our food and think of those who will go without food today. We call this a grace prayer, coming from the Latin word 'gratia' meaning thanks.
We end with the Sign of the Cross
If you have a prayer request, please send to
