November Masses for the Dead: Every November our thoughts and prayers turn to our loved ones who have died. Our faith tells us that our prayers and Masses can help them.

In collecting your envelope, if you know a neighbour or neighbours who would appreciate an envelope, please take one for them.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit.
O Holy Spirit, give me stillness of soul in you.
Calm the turmoil within, with the gentleness of your peace.
Quiet the anxiety within, with a deep trust in you.
Heal the wounds of sin within, with the joy of your forgiveness.
Strengthen the faith within, with the awareness of your presence.
Confirm the hope within, with the knowledge of your strength.
Build the love within that can reach out to others in care and kindness.
Speak, Lord, your servant is listening. Amen.
