On this, our Parish Feast Day, we pray to God for our Parish community, for a blessing on our Priests and Deacons, past and present, and for all those who have gone before us.
May our parish continue to grow in strength and love for one another and continue together in prayer, for now apart but soon enough together again.
Saint Augustine of Canterbury, pray for us.
O God, who by the preaching
of the Bishop Saint Augustine of Canterbury
led the English peoples to the Gospel,
grant, we pray, that the fruits of his labours
may remain ever abundant in your Church.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen
Apart, yet together.
