Prayers of the faithful
Priest:  In our prayers today, we think about how people grow and change and we marvel at how God works in people’s lives and in the world around us.
We pray for young people growing up; we pray for adults in their learning and growing; we pray that people will continue to flourish as they grow old.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for trust, and for eyes to see how God is at work in our lives, bringing growth even from small beginnings.  Lord, hear us.
In our church community may people find shelter and feel at home, feel refreshed and encouraged to grow.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for people who work on the land, for people who plant and wait for growth to come.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for all who have died.  May they flourish for ever, making their home with the Lord.  Lord, hear us.
Priest:  We praise you, God, for creating us.  We praise you, Jesus, for showing us the way.  We praise you, Holy Spirit, source of growth and new life.  Glory be to The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit, Amen.

THE DEACON: CALLED TO SERVE: Today at 3pm in St Michael’s Church, Enniskillen, Martin Donnelly of Enniskillen will be ordained as the first permanent deacon in our diocese since the diaconate was re-introduced by Vatican II as a ‘distinct ministry of  service’. All are welcome to witness Martin’s ordination. On Monday 18 June, Deacon Martin will preside at Evening Prayer of Thanksgiving in St Michael’s Church at 7.30pm. We are all asked to pray for Martin, his wife and family and the whole parish community of Enniskillen  during the days ahead.
WHO IS OUR NEW DEACON?  Martin Donnelly and his wife Caitlín live in Enniskillen. They have two children Ciara (married to Cathal) and Brian (married to Ruth) and a nine-month old Grandson, Lorcan. Martin spent his working life in the field of Education as a teacher, Principal and Senior Education Adviser. His educational post-graduate studies included Masters degrees in Education Policy, Management and Philosophy. Following early retirement in 2011 Martin studied Pastoral Liturgy (H.Dip) in St Patricks Pontifical University, Maynooth before commencing the academic and human formation for Diaconate. Martin has been active in parish ministry throughout his life. He has served as chairperson of the Parish Pastoral Council of St Michael’s Parish, Enniskillen and Lisbellaw and is the current chairperson of the Clogher Diocesan Liturgy Commission. He has been assigned to minister in the Enniskillen Pastoral Area (Enniskillen & Tempo parishes). Today, he will be ordained in St Michael’s Church, Enniskillen, by the Bishop of Raphoe, Most Rev. Alan McGuckian. We assure Martin, Caitlín and their family and the people of the Enniskillen Pastoral Area of our prayerful good wishes.

New Priest for the Diocese: On Sunday 1 July, Rev Seán Mulligan, a native of Knockatallon, Co Monaghan, will be ordained to the Priesthood for our diocese in  St Macartan’s Cathedral, Monaghan at 3pm.
