Prayers Of The Faithful
The Most Holy Trinity
 26/27 May 2018

PRIEST

Dear friends, the one true God has been revealed to us as a threefold community of love. We bring all our hopes to God our Father through the Son and the Holy Spirit.

 

READER

  • We pray that as a people baptised in the name of the Trinity we may be a ‘song of joy’ to our community and to all those we touch in our daily lives.

(PAUSE)  Holy Trinity, One God, hear us: Lord, hear our prayer

 

  • We pray with gratitude for the blessings of our parish retreat. May it be a source of spiritual growth for our whole community and may we continue to value the wisdom of Pope Francis. 

(PAUSE)  Holy Trinity, One God, hear us: Lord, hear our prayer

 

  • We pray with and for our children as the time of their Confirmation draws near. May all around them, families, friends and teachers, help them to understand the step they will take at their Confirmation on 17th June.

(PAUSE)  Holy Trinity, One God, hear us: Lord, hear our prayer

 

  • We pray for Archbishop Mark Coleridge, newly chosen by his fellow bishops at this important and challenging time, to be president of the Australian Bishops’ Conference. May all our Bishops be blessed with wisdom and courage to be truly servant leaders of a renewed, revitalised Church. 

(PAUSE)  Holy Trinity, One God, hear us: Lord, hear our prayer

 

  • We give thanks for ‘Palliative Care Week’ which puts before us the special needs of those facing the end of their lives or the challenge of living with debilitating  illness or pain. May all who care for others under these circumstances be appreciated and may new understandings mean new ways of relieving suffering. 

(PAUSE)  Holy Trinity, One God, hear us: Lord, hear our prayer

 

  • We pray for Fr Tom Doyle, Robert Fisher, Barney Cooney, Ian Claric, Stefan Dabrowski, Rob McKeree, Merle Lewis, Oriana Formica, Patrick Brooks, Barry Townsin, Kathleen Dowling, Jill O’Neill, Lucy Cust, Dan McMahon, Joe Markham, Nazha Shamieh  and all who are sick or in need at this time.

  • We pray for all who have died recently or whose anniversary occurs at this time, and departed family and friends, especially Damian Pilla, Anna Ciavarella, Florence Quinane, Terry Walpole, Mariangela Stramandinoli, Ellen Ryan, Said Shamieh. May they share to the full in the glory promised the children of God.

(PAUSE)  Holy Trinity, One God, hear us: Lord, hear our prayer

 

PRIEST 

Holy God, living and true, you have uncovered your face to us in Jesus Christ and sent your spirit to dwell in our hearts. Enfold us in the mystery of love that you, Father, share with your Son and the Holy Spirit. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
