Prayerful Concerns of Our Parish Community – 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time
May these Prayers of the Faithful from the weekend of October 8 and 9, the 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time be helpful for those for whom we offer these prayers and to you in your own reflections and prayer life.
Naaman first said “how can it be so simple?” Help us to believe in your desire to love us, heal us and dwell with us. For that grace and in hope we pray
For Native or First Nations peoples here and around the world and that we find ways in which the dignity and cultural rights of all people are recognized, respected and honored. We pray to the Lord.
For health during this time of lingering covid and seasonal rise in flu cases. For health-care workers and for a spirit of mutual caring among us. We pray to the Lord.
Put into our hearts a spirit of deep gratitude and a commitment and desire to extend the welcome of our hands and hearts to all who would, by some, be treated as lepers in today’s world. We pray to the Lord.
It is so easy for us to put barriers and conditions on God’s love for ourselves and others. Help us to believe and experience that God sets no conditions on love, except that we accept it. We pray to the Lord.
Bless our parish and school with healing where that is needed, hope and joy to enliven us, people to join us, and sufficient money and support to meet our needs. We pray to the Lord.
May your gracious care be with all who have died. At this liturgy we especially ask blessing for:
4:30 PM Thomas Ferrante by Kay & Willy Guimond
7:30 AM Deceased Members of Julie & Rosaire Dostie’s Family by The Family
9:30 AM Elizabeth & Joseph Holzhamer by Frank Paul
5:00 PM For The People of the Parish both Living and Deceased
We pray to the Lord.
Lord we present these prayers and those we hold in our hearts. Set us free from all that harms us, bless the suffering and lonely, outcasts and the forgotten ones. We make these prayers through Christ our Lord. Amen.
