Jesus says, ‘There is no need to be afraid’ … we pray that the cries for justice in the Black Lives Movement, for peace throughout the Middle East and freedom everywhere will at last be heeded; that those who carry out terror attacks might recognise the harm they do to their sisters and brothers

We pray for peacemakers and educators, for those who care for our environment and for the vulnerable in our society, for those elected to public office and government … may each pursue their vocation with integrity and generosity of spirit and may we all listen to the cries of the poor, the cries of the Earth and act with urgency

‘Do not be afraid…’ says Jesus – for all the sick and housebound, for those trapped in fear and depression and those suffering from the Covid-19 virus; we pray also for Carol Strainge, Margaret Ulloa and all awaiting surgery;
for those who have died recently, in particular Stan Cuffy and Pauline Oaten, the victims  of the Corona virus throughout the world and those killed in war and conflict
and for all whose anniversaries are at this time: Eileen Bell

Let us pray in a moment of silence that we will always answer the call of Christ…
