Prayer for Parish

Christ Jesus,

You who love us and deepen in us the knowledge of Your name and Your love, open all doors and make known the way of salvation, You call us to take time and to be with You in prayer, to draw close to You and to seek Your Will.

You desire to purify our hearts and to lead us to repentance draw us together as a community and help us to open our hearts to appreciate the gift of each other.

Bless our Parish Community and all those we love. May your grace lead us to a new Pentecost in our lives to go and proclaim the Good News to all and a deeper desire to live the mission of the Church.

AMEN

All Souls Day

All Souls’ Day commemorates the faithful departed, those baptized Christians believed to be in purgatory. Purgatory is ‘the state of those who die in God’s friendship, assured of their eternal salvation, but who still have need of purification to enter into the happiness of heaven’. The day purposely follows All Saints Day in order to shift the focus from those in heaven to those in purgatory.

A plenary indulgence may be gained for the dead, once only, by visiting a church today and praying the Lord’s Prayer and the Creed. Three conditions are required for gaining the indulgence: sacramental confession, Eucharistic communion and prayer for the Pope’s intentions. We also encourage you to visit a cemetery and pray for your loved ones.

Masses at St. Lawrence, Balcatta will be celebrated at 9.00am and 7.30pm. All welcome.
