This page contains some of the traditional prayers of the Catholic Church.

Our Father

Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.


Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary;
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried.

He descended into hell;
the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
is seated at the right hand of
God the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall come
to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Holy Catholic Church,
the communion of Saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.


Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.

Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.


The Angelus

℣. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary,
℟. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

Hail, Mary...

℣. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
℟. Be it done unto me according to thy word.

Hail, Mary...

℣. And the Word was made flesh.
℟. And dwelt among us.

Hail, Mary...

℣. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
℟. 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 be brought to the glory of His Resurrection.
Through the same Christ our Lord.
