               [response:]        YOUR WILL BE DONE…

We are all called to life and wholeness:  for those struggling in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic and all who care for them; for the victims of domestic abuse and for all suffering mental turmoil and depression because of isolation or fear; the housebound and sick of our parish …
for all who have died recently, especially victims of Covid-19 and al who been killed by war, conflict and famine;
for those whose anniversaries occur at this time:

               [reader:]              LORD YOU CALL US…
               [response:]        YOUR WILL BE DONE…

Let us ask Mary, who uttered her ‘Yes’ to God’s Call,  to pray that each will embrace our vocation more profoundly…

                                               HAIL MARY…

Let us pray in a moment of silence for unknown needs…
