Hopefully you'll find something here to interest you. If you're a current or former member of the parish, we'd welcome your contributions to the site. Have you any memories you'd like to share of your time in the parish? If so, please get in touch.
O God, who by the mystery of today's great feast sanctify your whole Church in every people and nation, pour out, we pray, the gifts of the Holy Spirit across the face of the earth and, with the divine grace that was at work when the Gospel was first proclaimed, fill now once more the hearts of believers. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
A Parish Prayer
Father of love and all blessings, you chose Mary, your lowly handmaid, to be the Mother of Your beloved Son. Mary listened to your word and believed what she heard. She responded with love and confident trust to the mission you offered her.
She Followed Jesus as the perfect disciple and shared in His mission of reconciliation and the proclamation of the Kingdom. At the end, she stood by Him at the foot of the Cross and shared in the joy of the Resurrection and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
May we follow her example of discipleship. Bless our parish and strengthen our fellowship and communion. May we, like Mary, accept the work you give us to do.
We make our prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
