Bulletin Lent 2 Sunday March 17th

Intercessions

for ourselves: That we may seek and find the presence of God as we give more attention to prayer,  try to develop more sense of self-sacrifice, and show more love to our neighbour in need.
Lord, hear us

For Pope Francis:  that God will guide him in leading the Church so that people are attracted to God who loves us by what they see in how we all behave
Lord, hear us

For all who are estranged from the church: that they not be complacent and dismissive, but be encouraged to to look more deeply into the goodness in so many faith-filled lives.

For our country, Ireland  and the European Union:  that we may be guided to take the right decisions for the well-being of us all, and that necessary reforms be found and implemented both in Europe and in the UK.
Lord, hear us

For the sick and housebound of our families, friends and community: including Frances Dunlop,  Mary Bradley, Douglas Miller, John Dunne, Margaret Browne, Yvonne Watt, Cathie Gilbert, Moira Montgomery, Sandra Barlow, Jerry Connor, and the patients in the local Hospice.  We also pray for those who serve the community in the armed forces.      Lord, hear us
