Holy Communion team at the Papal Mass in the Phoenix Park on Sunday August 26th: We are seeking the generous help of around 4,000 ministers of Holy Communion to volunteer for one day to be Christ’s disciples helping to give the Bread of Life to the people at this historic Papal Mass.  This is open to any of those who are already trained and assisting with the distribution of Holy Communion in their own parishes.  We are looking for the help of lay people, priests, deacons and religious Ministers of Holy Communion. You will need to be garda vetted for this event, even though you have been vetted for this ministry in your own parish [if you are already Garda vetted for WMOF2018, that suffices]. You will need to be in the Phoenix Park by 10:30AM on SUNDAY 26th August so as to be walked through how and where you will minister. Please leave your name and phone number into Parish Office if you are interested.



God, our Father,
We are brothers and sisters in Jesus your Son,
One family, in the Spirit of your love.
Bless us with the joy of love.
Make us patient and kind,
gentle and generous,
welcoming to those in need.
Help us to live your forgiveness and peace.
Protect all families with your loving care,
Especially those for whom we now pray

[We pause and remember family members and others by name].

Increase our faith,
Strengthen our hope,
Keep us safe in your love,
Make us always grateful for the gift of life that we share.
This we ask, through Christ our Lord,
Mary, mother and guide, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, father and protector, pray for us.
Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.
Saints Louis and Zélie Martin, pray for us.
