May we be a listening Church, welcoming to the hesitant, encouraging to the young, sensitive to the differences and attentive to the needs.
May we be a caring world, wise in government, honest in promises, far-sighted in the management of resources, and open-hearted in charitable giving.
May we be a responsible community, supporting our neighbours and friends, sharing one another’s sorrows and joys, and opening our homes to the presence of the Lord.
As we remember those who have asked for our prayers, we ask that the Lord may take their needs and provide for them, take their wounds and heal them, take their suffering and comfort them.
As we call to mind those who have died, may they know the welcoming of God’s love into eternal joy.
