Our parish prayer
God our loving Father,
You made us your children in baptism.
Pour out on us the gifts of your Holy Spirit.
Help us as a parish to know the paths we must follow so as to build up your kingdom.
Teach us to grow in faith, to encourage one another with words of hope, and to care for your family with love.
Let us bear witness to the Good News, and be faithful followers of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen
