Family Prayer for World Meeting of Families
God, our Father,
We are brothers and sisters in Jesus your Son,
One family, in the Spirit of your love.
Bless us with the joy of love.
Make us patient and kind,
gentle and generous,
welcoming to those in need.
Help us to live your forgiveness and peace.
Protect all families with your loving care,
Especially those for whom we now pray:
[We pause and remember family members and other by name]
Increase our faith,
Strengthen our hope,
Keep us safe in your love,
Make us always grateful for the gift of life that we share.
This we ask, through Christ our Lord, Amen.
Céad Comaoine / First Holy Communion 2018
NB: We invite all First Communicants and Parents / Guardians to occupy the front seats of our Church today, please.
First Communicants will be invited to place their Enrolment Certificates on the Altar.
Stations – Invitation
Celebrating the Station Mass in the home enables us to share our faith at the table of the Eucharist inviting the Lord’s blessing on our community. Gathering after the Mass, meeting and chatting with neighbours is also an important part of the occasion. We welcome anyone who would like to host a station Mass in their home. To arrange a date, please contact the Parish Office 066-9151208.
St. Augustine put it well by saying our hearts are never at rest until they rest in the Lord. It is good to have access to somewhere safe and secure in this world to retreat to. Every single one of us needs some form of shelter from those severe and serious storms of life. We also need shelter from a world whose pace is constant, demanding and often unforgiving.
You Lord, are our shelter and our harbour. Protect and guide us, when life and all around us gets rough and stormy. Protect and guide those who are close and near to us. Amen.
