BUlletin 21st July 2019


For the Church: that the hospitality we show and the love we try to have for our neighbour may enable us to see thecae of God.

Lord, hear us

For ourselves when we are caught up in activity: that God will free us from overworking, help us find the life-giving balance, and recognize the good relationships which help us to be human.   Lord, hear us

Lord, hear us

We pray for peace and the growth of understanding amongst the nations.  We remember our own country and  the European Union,  at this time of political uncertainty.   

Lord, hear us.

For all who are ill, and for those who support and care for them: 

Margaret Grant, Caitlin Laughed  Jane Cameron, Bill Meechan, John Gibson,  Irene Docherty,  Lewis Harte, Ray McVey, Brian Gallagher, Frank Kearney, Kathleen Mallon,  Anne Judge, Catriona Glen,  Yvonne Watt, and Joan Burns.  We pray also for the patients in the local Hospice.
Lord, hear us.

For our deceased relatives, friends & fellow-parishioners, including May Murphy, Eileen McCorriston, Thomas Cawley, Sandy MacVarish, Michael Cain, John Dunne, Mary Duffy, Gerry Moran,  Anne Troy, John Clasper, Catherine Farmington, and Peggy MacMillan. We pray also for all those whose anniversary falls about now including Martin Harrison, Margaret and Jane Buckley,  and  Patrick Gara.
