Occasional Prayers for the School Year

About Occasional Prayers for the School Year

‘A resource such as this is so valuable and really is a must-have for busy teachers’.   The Furrow

‘A useful single source for all who are regularly or occasionally called to preside for a ceremony or event in school.’  Intercom

‘…a godsend to school chaplains’   Catholic South West

An ideal book for busy teachers, chaplains, or anyone who often seeks a prayer or service for a particular event and finds themselves searching among a variety of sources for just ‘the right piece’. Working in a Jesuit school for over 2o years, where school gatherings are common and always prefaced with a prayer, the author has collated a number of prayers she has written over the years as a ‘go-to’ for those who lead prayers.

Gráinne Delaney received her Bachelor of Religious Science from the Mater Dei Institute of Education. Her role as Chaplain in Crescent College Comprehensive SJ has fostered her interest in faith formation.
