Thank you to all contributors of website content.

We ask Your blessing, Gracious God, on our parish. May it always assemble in peace, in reconciliation, justice and joy, in praise of You and in service to the world. May we always accept each other with gratitude and build up each other as members of one body. Teach us to give instead of demanding, to trust others rather than to compel trust, to serve rather than to be served. Make us thankful for the variety of gifts and differences of personality that enrich us. Help us to accept our differences of age, giving respect to the old and encouragement to the young. Never let us be satisfied with imperfections but also teach us that patience which is Yours. In peace let us be open to listen and to speak with readiness to learn. Purge from our hearts all bitterness, jealousy and thoughts of revenge. Lift us out of depression and sadness. Let us accept joyfully the service of those who lead us, so that we may grow together in love. May we be one as Your Son, Jesus Christ, prayed that we might be. With Him in the unity of the Holy Spirit we give You all honour and glory. AMEN
