We pray for all students, staff and families

in our Padua school community

that we might seek to live out the example

that St Anthony of Padua is to us all.

The fire of God’s truth burnt brightly in his heart,

flowing over into the passion of his preaching

and the love with which he met all people,

particularly the poor and dispirited.

May the same fire burn

in us and our school community

throughout this year,

and in everything we do

as a school community

blessed by his name.
