CONFIRMATION MASS

That all God’s Church will share the Light and Wisdom of the Holy Spirit with our world, that they will see the presence of God among us
LORD WE THIRST…
Veni Creator Spiritus (sung)

For our Universal Pastor, Pope Francis; for our bishop Declan, as he shares the empowering Spirit with our community today; for our priests, deacons, and religious sisters, our catechists and teachers: for all who share the faith of Christ and His Good News with us
LORD WE THIRST…

We pray for a future of peace and justice upon the earth, so that children no longer starve, mothers no longer die young, and young people need never again wage war for freedom and dignity; that we will be Good News to Creation, healing the ravages that lead to Global Warming

LORD WE THIRST…

That our young people who are confirmed in our parish, our deanery and throughout our Diocese this coming year will experience the Holy Spirit transforming their lives, and grow in all ways into Christ, opening themselves to the sanctifying gifts that lead to holiness

LORD WE THIRST…

That all who are confirmed today will respond to the challenge to build the church and transform the world in the power of the Spirit, as they are empowered with charismatic gifts to minister, witness and serve effectively to our world of today.

LORD WE THIRST…

For our families and friends, our catechists and companions in the journey of faith, that Christ may anoint us all with the Spirit’s gifts as we serve one another, and build our parish as a communion for mission to the Glory of God

LORD WE THIRST…

For the sick of our parish community, for all who suffer in mind, body or through addictions; and especially for all suffering from the Coronavirus and those health professionals who care for them;
we pray for those recently dead, in particular … and for those killed in the German shootings, all who have died in the brutal conflict in Idlib, Syria, and those who have perished on the Refugee journey;
and for all whose anniversaries occur at this time:

LORD WE THIRST…

Mary, Mother of the Church at Pentecost, share the Spirit of Jesus with us…
                                             HAIL MARY…

Let us pray for one another in a moment of silence…
