Parish Prayers






HAIL HOLY QUEEN, mother of mercy, hail our life, our sweetness and our hope. To Thee do we cry poor banished children of Eve. To Thee do we send up our sighs mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate thine eyes of mercy towards us, and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, o loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

HOLY MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him we humbly pray, and do thou O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust down to hell satan and all his wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.

COME O HOLY SPIRIT, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle within them the fire of Thy love. Send forth Thy Spirit and our hearts shall be re-created, and Thou shalt renew the face of the earth. O God Who has taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of Thy Holy Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Holy Spirit we may be always truly wise, and ever rejoice in His consolations.

O JESUS, through the most pure heart of Mary, I offer Thee all my thoughts, prayers, sufferings and joys of this day, together with Thy Divine Heart in the Holy Mass.

I believe in God the Father Almighty creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ His only Son Our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.


BLESS US O Lord and these Thy gifts which we are about to receive, from Thy bounty. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


WE GIVE THEE thanks Almighty God for these and all Thy benefits which we have received. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


O MY GOD, because you are so good, I am very sorry for all my sins, and, by the help of Thy grace, I will keep on trying my best not to sin again. Amen.

May the Divine Assistance remain always with us. Amen

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
