Catholic Prayers In Latin

Below are some of the traditional catholic prayers in Latin and links to websites that have additional prayers that your children can learn. I also posted some games, songs, and worksheets that might help your child to learn the prayers in Latin.

Signum Crucis (The Sign of the Cross)

In nomine Patris, et Filii,
et Spiritus Sancti.

Gloria Patri (Glory Be to the Father)

Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper,
et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

Ave Maria (Hail Mary)

Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae.

Pater Noster (Our Father)

Pater Noster,
qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua,
sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo.

Write the prayers on strips of paper or card stock. Cut out strips and glue strips of the prayers in the proper order on a piece of construction paper. (For younger students you can do this together as a group activity.) You can also play this as a game by dividing the class into teams and give each team the strips of the prayers. See which team can put it in the proper order the fastest.

Songs: Gloria Patri Hail Mary in Latin (song) with English translation Our Father in Latin (song) with English translation
