For the Church: Moses invited the people of Israel to focus on what was important.  May we too avoid being distracted by

what is not really important and give our attention to what matters – love of God and of our neighbour.    Lord, hear us

For all believers, and all men and women of good will –

that we may have the wisdom to respect each other and to support always what is good.         Lord, hear us

That people everywhere may enjoy peace and be free from any kind of oppression, neglect and violence.  We pray for the peoples of the Middle East and for the conversion of all who profit in any way from the promotion of war and the sale of arms.       Lord, hear us

We pray for our sick and housebound including Noel Donnelly,  Catriona Glen, Tracey Clark, Catherine Walker, Kelvin Mobbs, Jack Rae,  Bill Harrison,  Anne Judge, Frank Kearney, Marian McCulloch, Cathy Gilbert, Moira Montgomery, Yvonne Watt and Jerry Connor  –   we pray also for those who care for them       Lord, hear us

For our deceased friends and relatives, including Bob Hill,  Bill O’Connor, Eileen , Margaret Buckley, Sarah O’Reilly, Kathleen McCann, Leo Gilbert, Mike Daly, Annie Harris, Margaret Broe and Lena McCabe.

We remember in prayer those who have died in the past year: Bridget Devlin, Elizabeth Lamb, Patrick Gallagher, Mary Birrell and Bernard Gilmartin.

We pray for all who mourn.      Lord, hear us


We remember those whose lives are at risk as they serve the community in the armed forces.        Lord, hear us

During November we end our intercessions singing: May the souls of the faithful departed
