Children from each school, as well as parishioners, will share prayers and thoughts as we pause for reflection on the walk. All are welcome.

We pray God’s blessing this day on the people of our parish, on Ireland and on the many millions throughout the world who join with us. We think today of our exiles far from home: may the Christian faith be their support and comfort always. We pray also for the many people who have come to our country in recent years seeking shelter, asylum and a new life. May our welcome to them be generous and kind. St. Patrick, protect us all on the journey of life. Amen.
