Prayer for Families (First of our four Christmas Retreat Masses)

In preparation for Christmas, Mass will be offered for the next 4 Wednesdays, beginning this Wednesday 27th November. The first theme of our Christmas Retreat will be ‘The Family’.

Prayer for my Family


O dear Jesus,
I humbly implore You to grant Your special graces to our family.
May our home be the shrine of peace, purity, love, labor and faith.
I beg You, dear Jesus, to protect and bless all of us, absent and present, living
and dead.

O Mary,
loving Mother of Jesus,
and our Mother,
pray to Jesus for our family,
for all the families of the world,
to guard the cradle of the newborn,
the schools of the young and their vocations.

Blessed Saint Joseph,
holy guardian of Jesus and Mary,
assist us by your prayers
in all the necessities of life.
Ask of Jesus that special grace
which He granted to you,
to watch over our home
at the pillow of the sick and the dying,
so that with Mary and with you,
heaven may find our family unbroken
in the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Christmas Mission

As part of our preparations for Christmas, a Mission over four Wednesdays will start on Wednesday 29th November and for the following three Wednesdays. Mass will be at 7 PM and the themes will be – Family, Healing, Real meaning of Christmas and Confession


Lord, our God, help us to walk with you
On the pathway to the beatitudes and
To live out your mission in today’s world.

Bind us to all men and women of our time
So that together we may bring the
Good News to the ends of the earth.

Open our hearts and our Christian communities
To the needy, the afflicted, the oppressed.
May we radiate the Living Christ
And transform our lives in the hope of the Resurrection.

This prayer we make to you
Who is the living God, now and forever.

Prayer for our Dead

The annual Ceremony for commemoration of the Dead will take place on Friday 24th November at 7.30pm, which is also the Feast of St Rynagh, Patron of our Parish.

Prayer for the Dead


God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.
