Hands in Prayer

 

PRAYER FOR OUR OUTGOING AND INCOMING PRIEST

 

Almighty God, You who called the universe into being, You who formed our inmost being and called us to be your people:


We give you thanks for your constant presence. Through seasons of constancy and even change, you are with us – calling us into deeper waters, calling us together in your spirit of unity, calling us out of ourselves into the world to serve others.


Grant that our pastor Fr Francis, now being called into new waters, might hold fast to your unending love and mercy. May his new parish that will receive him be a community of mercy and grace. Keep Fr Francis safe from all harm and give him the blessings of good health and the joy of living out his ministry. Grant him the fidelity to consecrated celibacy.


Grant Msgr Mel, our incoming pastor, the grace to shepherd us as a Good Shepherd. Give him the grace of discernment, the grace of prudence and wise judgment that he may carry out his role as father and counselor to us.


May we who undergo change hold fast to the promise that your mission is bigger than any of our plans. Grant that such a promise would bring both comfort and discomfort – comfort in a season of change and discomfort as it drives us all to love and serve you and each other more.


Strengthen us to be your Church in all times and seasons of life – a community where all are truly welcomed and embraced in your love; a community which finds ways where you are active among us and calling us to join in your saving work ; a community where the story of your love and grace and mercy are embodied.


We offer our prayers through the intercession of Mary, our Mother of Good Counsel. Amen.

Fatima Celebration

 

To celebrate the Centennial of the Apparition of Our Blessed Mother in Fatima, we shall have a Penitential Procession at 4:30 AM, Floral Offering at 6 AM and Living Rosary at 5:30 PM.  We invite families and individuals to participate in these activities as we commemorate this important Marian event in the 20th century.

The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, appeared 6 times to 3 children: Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta; between May 13 and October 13, 1917. She came to the little village of Fatima which had remained faithful to the Catholic Church during the persecutions by the government. Our Lady came with a message from God to every man, woman, and child. Our Lady of Fatima promised that the whole world would be in peace, and that many souls would go to Heaven if Her requests were listened to and obeyed. She told us that war is a punishment for sin; that God would punish the world for its sins in our time by means of war, hunger, persecution of the Church and persecution of the Holy Father, the Pope, unless we listened to and obeyed the command of God. At Fatima, Pope John Paul II said on May 13; " the message of Fatima is more relevant and more urgent " then when Our Lady first appeared. The message is an anguished appeal of our Heavenly Mother, who sees us in great danger and who comes to offer Her help and advice. Her message is also a prophesy, a clear indication of what was about to transpire in the 20th century, and what is still going to happen infallibly in the near future, depending on our response to Her requests.
