Parish Prayer

Heavenly Father,
you have chosen our parish as the place by which you encounter
us in our daily lives.

Here your word is proclaimed, the Eucharist is celebrated
and your people are united in a family of believers.

We pray for our parish named in honour of St Simon Peter
and placed under his patronage.

Through his intercession may every blessing be poured out on all members of our parish.

We pray for our schools, their staff and students, and all their families.

May our parish be filled with holiness and prayer, with faith and love;

May it be a place where worthy and reverent worship is offered to God, 
and where we receive grace and power for our mission.

May all who come here find a welcoming home, 
comfort in their needs and strength for their journey of faith.

We make this prayer through Christ, Our Lord.
