Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven, 

Hallowed be Thy Name. 

Thy Kingdom come. 

Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. 

And forgive us our trespasses, 

As we forgive those who trespass against us. 

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil. Amen.

 

 

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of Grace,

The Lord is with thee.

Blessed are thou among women and

Blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.

 

Holy Mary Mother of God,

Pray for us sinners now and

At the hour of our death

Amen.

O my God, I am very sorry for all my sins,

Because they displease you,

Who are all-good and deserving of all my love.

With your help, I will sin no more.

Amen.

 

Sacrament of Reconciliation
