PRIEST

Dear friends, blessed with the love of God, the grace of Jesus Christ, and communion in the Holy Spirit, let us pray in faith for the needs of the whole world.

  • For our children receiving Holy Communion for the first time this weekend. May it be a truly significant step on their faith journeys and a source of blessings in the future.

(PAUSE)  Father, Son and Holy Spirit hear us:  Lord, hear our prayer

 

  • For those near the end of their lives. May they receive the palliative care which is appropriate for them and we pray for those who, in many ways, provide that care.    

(PAUSE)  Father, Son and Holy Spirit hear us:  Lord, hear our prayer

 

  • For the election of our new Parish Pastoral Council. We pray for wisdom for all parishioners as they choose a group which has the gifts to lead our parish in this time of renewal.

     (PAUSE)  Father, Son and Holy Spirit hear us:  Lord, hear our prayer

 

  • For migrants and refugees. We give thanks for those who have enriched our lives by sharing their cultural heritage and we pray that Refugee week will be a powerful impetus for the world community to address the needs of the millions of others who desperately need a place to call home.

  • For the people of Hong Kong. May the promises of shared government be honoured so that their hope for democracy is kept alive.

  • For the sick and those in special need, especially Antonietta Greco, Carmel Murphy, Sister Jacquelyn Bender, Fr Burns Huggan, Jillian Champness, Leo McEvey, Fran Lovric, Martin Stenhouse, Tam Tran, Margaret Edwards, Esma and Peter Kelso. May they know God’s healing love through those who care for them.

  • For all who have died recently, those whose anniversary occurs at this time, and for departed family and friends, especially Giuachino Giudice, Anne Scerri, Basil Cleary, Irene Gillespie, Jean Squire, Mary Jackson, Brendan Jones and Maria Dri. May they share to the full in the boundless love of the Holy Trinity. 

(PAUSE)  Father, Son and Holy Spirit hear us: Lord, hear our prayer

Holy God, Word of life and Spirit of love, we praise and bless you. Keep us always in communion with you and deepen our love for one another. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
