NOVENA PRAYER            

Pilgrim God, we give you thanks and praise.

You constantly journey with us even

in our darkness and doubts.

We seek your way of loving kindness

to walk together as one family.

Open our eyes to recognise you in

the faces of one another,

in the breaking of bread and in the

splendour of creation.

May the risen Christ sow seeds of hope

and new life deep within us.

May our hearts and minds be filled with your Word, bringing forth truth, justice and peace.

May the Holy Spirit working in and through us

do much more than we can dare to imagine

as we live out our baptismal calling

in humble and loving service.

We make this our prayer through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Thank you for joining in prayer  during the Novena.

Laudato Si Quotes on the Environment

 “Nature is a magnificent book in which God speaks to & grants us a glimpse of his infinite beauty and goodness.  Rather than a problem to be solved, the world is a joyful mystery to be contemplated with gladness & praise” (Laudato Si, 12)
