Prayerful Concerns of Our Parish Community: 7th Sunday of Easter
Each week, we share the Prayers of the Faithful from the weekend. You may find these intentions to be a helpful way to guide your own reflections, prayers, and conversations with God. Below you’ll find the Prayers of the Faithful from the 7th Sunday of Easter, May 28-29, 2022.
We ask you, God, to hear our prayers, especially those silent ones. But we also present before you now these we have put into words.
God, in our land it is Memorial Day on Monday. We ask you to embrace those who set aside their lives to serve their country and those who gave even their lives, also those whose bodily or psychological health has been damaged. We asked too, that we honor them by a commitment to put aside war and violence as a way to settle disputes, free even our hearts and minds from violence or vengeance, we pray to the Lord.
We pray for good people to serve our parish as members of the Pastoral and Finance Councils, we pray to the Lord.
Bless our young people as they graduate from high school and move on from primary school. Walk with them as they continue to discover the gifts you have given them, we pray to the Lord.
For our parish and church that we reflect Jesus’ original program: “inclusion, non-violence, unconditional loving kindness and compassionate acceptance” – to and for all people, we pray to the Lord.
For those who are ill, particularly children and those with difficult diagnoses, we commend them to you, God though the intercession of Fr. Sebastian Rale, SJ, your friend, we pray to the Lord.
For all those who have died. At this liturgy we especially entrust to you:
4:30 PM John Decoste
7:00 AM Harold Yerxa
8:00 AM Nancy Cyr Farrington
9:00 AM For the People of the Parish both Living & Deceased
10:00 AM Joe Reali
5:00 PM John Finn
We pray to the Lord.
God, who are both Father and Mother to us, as Jesus your Son prayed for us, so we pray for one another. Let your love sustain us this day and every day so that we will be one with you and Jesus and rejoice in you for ever and ever. Amen.
