We remember those who teach the faith throughout the Church and throughout the world. May the Lord keep them close to his guiding, and open the hearts of those they teach to hear and receive his truth.
We remember those in positions of authority and influence in this country and in all societies, that needs may be noticed and addressed, good values upheld and all people respected.
We remember those who looked after us when we were very young, and those who have no one to love and care for them. We remember all young families and all the children in our parish, that they may be introduced to the one true God and live their lives in his company.
We remember the elderly faithful and especially those who are housebound and can no longer join us to worship in person. We give thanks for their example and pray for an increase of our love for one another across the age groups.
We remember those who have finished their lives on earth and commit them to the Father’s everlasting care and protection. We ask him to keep us faithful to the end of our life.
