‘A sower went out to sow the seed’ … that all God’s People will sow the seed of the Word of God’s Love into the field of the world, and seek with our whole heart the harvest of the Kingdom    

[READER]              LORD WE PRAY…

[Response]May Your Word grow within us…

‘Some seed fell upon barren ground’ … that politicians and leaders in every theatre of conflict and violence will sow seeds of Peace especially in Africa, and the whole Middle East region; that they will also work together for a global response to the Covid pandemic and bring about a new world of justice and equality for all

[READER]LORD WE PRAY…

‘Happy are your ears because they hear’ … we pray that all of us in our parish family will grow in a deeper love for the Word of God, and allow our lives and our parish to be formed by God’s Word: may our emerging ministry through the internet serve the sowing of the seed of God’s Word in many hearts and minds

‘Some seed fell upon rich soil and produced their crop’ … we pray for all who work the land and produce the food that feeds our nation and every nation – we pray for famine stricken peoples around the world, especially across in the Yemen and across Africa: may we learn to defend the victims and share equally with all at the Table of our fruitful earth

[READER]         LORD WE PRAY…

‘The lure of riches chokes the Word’ … as we continue our Covenant with the Poor, especially through our expanded Food Bank and the ministry of the Parish office, may it be our joy to buy justly and to reward the world’s workers properly – may we discover the power of sharing that can heal a greedy world

                                          [READER]LORD WE PRAY…

for those who have died recently, especially Claire Warren, Mikhail Hanid, Vahabee, and  all victims of race hatred, war, famine and the Covid pandemic;
and for all whose anniversaries are at this time: Mary McKay, the Serbeniscky atrocity 25 year years ago  and all victims of the Conflicts i Africa and Asia 

[READER]             LORD WE PRAY…

  Mary, Mother of the Word made Flesh, who pondered the Word, open our hearts to the Divine Seed, your Son, sown into creation to bring redemption to all…
