Novena Prayer to the Sacred Heart  
Begins on Thursday June 8th and continues until Friday June 16th
You have said,  O Divine Jesus, Ask and you shall receive, Seek and you shall find, Knock and it shall be Opened unto you.
Relying on these promises, I come with confidence to beg of You the favours That I need.
( ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ )
From whom shall I ask Divine Jesus, if not from You, whose Heart is an Unfailing source of Grace and merits.
Most loving Heart of God, I believe in your power, I believe in your knowledge, I believe in your Personal Love for me.
And therefore, O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

Our Father,   Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy 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 now as if you were already there and I unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

Funeral Masses in St. Paul's Church are at 10:00am unless otherwise notified.
Funerals have no capacity limits but all other protective measures remain in place.

Building Hope 

The Building Hope Prayer

Pilgrim God, we give you thanks and praise.
You constantly journey with us even in our darkness and doubts.
We seek your way of loving kindness to walk together as one family.
Open our eyes to recognise you in the faces of one another,
in the breaking of bread and in the splendour of creation.
May the risen Christ sow seeds of hope and new life deep within us.
May our hearts and minds be filled with your Word,
bringing forth truth, justice and peace.
May the Holy Spirit working in and through us do much more
than we can dare to imagine
as we live out our baptismal calling in humble and loving service.
We make this our prayer through Christ Our Lord.

Mary Mother of Christ, pray for us.
St. Laurence O'Toole, pray for us.
St. Kevin, pray for us
St. Brigid, pray for us
