FROM OUR BISHOP PATRICK:

 

My dear sister/brother in Christ, We now begin to prepare ourselves spiritually in the diocese for the National Eucharistic Congress being held in Liverpool from 7th - 9th September 2018. I very much appreciate the power of prayer, and I would be grateful for yours. I invite you to say the following short prayer every time you now receive Holy communion:

 

Dear Jesus, as I receive you today in Holy Communion,

I pray for everyone in my family, my parish,

and across our diocese.

May they, and I, grow steadily in our love of you,

and in our understanding of your

wonderful gift of yourself to us in the Eucharist. Amen

 

Our parish will say this lovely prayer together after Holy Communion in preparation for the Eucharistic Congress.
