SMOS Prayers


Loving god,

You call your people to holiness and create among them models of kindness. We thank you for the life

of St. Margaret of Scotland:

a woman of leadership and hope in a confusing world;

a wife and mother excelling in patience, dedication and love;

a teacher supported and inspired by a life of learning;

a generous friend and a loyal servant to the poor and helpless;

a model of Christian faith and constant prayerfulness.

As we build our faith, help us to grow rich in the values of St. Margaret:

The faith hope and love might inspire

our presence in the city and neighborhood,

our relationships with family and friends,

our concern for the education of the young,

our care for the poor and the weak,

our community’s prayer in word and sacrament.

Bless our parish and our school;

Let it be for us a community of love and sharing, and a source of life and grace;

Let it be a witness to our neighbors of your life, your presence and your love.

Through Christ, Our Lord,



St. Margaret of Scotland, blest patron of our school,

As a Christian and a ruler you let Christ be your rule.

In your good example, there’s a lesson, we must heed:

To love our God and neighbor well in thought, word, and deed.

As students and disciples we must strive to do our best

That we can share the gifts with which our lives have been blessed:

Where ever our futures leader, what ever lies in store,

May the spirit of Saint Marg’ret be with us evermore.
