Our School Praying



Our School Prayer
 
Where you open your heart, you will show affection: Where you have affection, you will have friendship: Where you have friendship, your trust in each other will grow and together you will find God. 


Our Lady of Peace Primary School was opened in November 2007 and is the amalgamation of two former schools, St Judes and St John Ogilvie.  The new school stands on the sight of the old Barlanark Primary school. 
The title, Our Lady, Queen of Peace, was an old reverence in France. During the First World War, Europe was being savaged by battles and millions were being killed.  In an attempt to raise the status of peace, Pope Benedict XV, asked the world to pray for peace and Our Lady of Peace was added to the Litany of Loreto, a sacred prayer in liturgy.  These intentions, along with Gospel values, are at the heart of everything we do.  
We celebrate our feast day on the 8th of September, the birthday of Our Lady.  We attend Mass in church and our new Primary 1 pupils process to the altar with cards and flowers.
