Mission save the date bigger

 

We invite everyone to partake in our parish mission run by the Sion Catholic Community from June the 25th until July 10th. This is a fitting opportunity to inspire and strengthen our parish before the 90th anniversary of St Peter’s Church and  in the Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis.

The theme of the mission is “Renew and Unite us in Your Spirit”

The prayer team has composed a beautiful mission prayer.  Please say our prayer daily for the success of the mission:

Father we praise you for
Your great love and compassion.

Send your Holy Spirit to renew our hearts
So that by your grace we may be filled
With love for you and for our neighbours.

Show us the path of life and
The fullness of joy in your presence.

Unite us in our faith
In our knowledge of your Son
And in works of service,
So that together we may build up
The Body of Christ.

Glory be to You from
Generation to generation in the Church
And in Christ Jesus forever and ever.
Amen

Our Lady, Help of Christians: Pray for us!

St. Peter: Pray for us!

St Stephen: Pray for us!

St Gregory: Pray for us!

St Thomas More: Pray for us!
