Prayer

 

Many Catholic Schools are named after saints. Our school is named after a prayer: the Angelus (see below).

This beautiful prayer, traditionally prayed three times daily by the faithful, proclaims the miracle of the Incarnation: The Word made flesh, who because of the Virgin Mary’s obedience now dwells among us. Angelus Academy came into being as a consequence of prayer, and its existence is sustained by prayer. Our faculty prays together every morning before the students arrive. Our faculty and students together pray at the beginning, middle and end of each day. Our students attend Mass in our Chapel weekly, along with monthly Adoration and the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Penance.

The school is authorized to provide catechesis for First Holy Communion and Confirmation, both of which are received in the students’ local parishes.

 

The Angelus

v. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary
r. And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art 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.

 

v. Behold the handmaid of the Lord
r. Be it done unto me according to thy Word.

 

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art 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.

 

v. And the Word was made Flesh
r. And dwelt among us.

 

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art 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.

 

v. Pray for us O holy Mother of God
r. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

 

Let us pray. Pour forth, we beseech thee, O Lord, thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by His passion and cross by brought to the glory of his resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
