Prayers of the faithful Priest: As we struggle through the ups and downs of life, we place our prayers before God the Father confident that he will listen to our requests. Let us pray for our Holy Father, Pope Francis, the successor of Peter. Give him the power of the Lord’s presence to direct him in the storms and crises that face the church. Lord, hear us. Lord Jesus, you calmed the storm on the Sea of Galilee and brought your disciples safe to the shore. Strengthen the faith of all those who believe in you. Lord, hear us. We remember all who face storms which threaten their peace and security. May the Lord restore calm to their troubled lives. Lord, hear us. May those who are ill be strengthened by our prayers and comforted by those who visit them. Lord, hear us. That the recently deceased, who have faithfully lived their lives for the Lord, may now experience the glory of his risen life. Lord, hear us. Heavenly Father, in moments of uncertainty calm our fears so that we may enjoy the peace and unity of your kingdom. We make our prayer through Christ, our Lord. Amen. Prayer accompanying an Act of Spiritual Communion: My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen. Recently deceased: Mick Hughes, Killyraine. Marie McMahon, Dundalk. Monsignor Sean Cahill. Ita Boyce, nee McGonnell, Basingstoke.

Music will be limited to one instrumentalist and one cantor rather than the complete choir. Hymnals have been removed from pews.
