We entrust all those who have died as the result of senseless evil violence to the heart of Mary and we remember the families now in grief.
O God, author and lover of peace, to know you is to live, to serve you is to reign; defend against every attack those who cry to you, so that we, who trust in your protection, may not fear the weapons of any foeThrough Christ our Lord.
We pray for all those who are maimed and injured and for your worried families. We thank the members of the NHS, the emergency services, for all who showed kindness and care on that terrible night and all those who have helped Manchester in this dark time. Click here for Poem from the Vigil
Our prayers and condolences with all those families involved in this terrible incident. We keep you in mind in this time of fear and anxiety. For the innocent who have lost their lives; may they rest in peace and we want to support the families of those affected.
Tomorrow is our Covenant Mass celebration and you are invited. Deepening our Covenant of Love means to see one another in our greatness. Pope Francis says in his letter on the joy of love in the family: The love of friendship is called “charity” when it perceives and esteems the “great worth” of another person. Beauty – that “great worth” which is other than physical or psychological appeal – enables us to appreciate the sacredness of a person, without feeling the need to possess it. In a consumerist society, the sense of beauty is impoverished and so joy fades.
Our Joy is knowing we belong to the family of God and help built a home in which love is at the heart. Please come along and join us for Mass at 7.30pm on Thursday 18th May at 7.30pm. Please bring donations for our food bank.
