Bulletin 33 November 19 2017


Pope Francis writes: “My wish is that the dialogue between us should help to build bridges connecting all people,  in such a way that everyone can see in the other not an enemy, not a rival, but a brother or sister to be welcomed and embraced,”

As we conclude Interfaith Week,
  • For the church, for Pope Francis, our own Archbishop, the leaders of all the christian churches and other faiths that we may grow in respect for each other as we grow in the love of God.
    Lord, hear us
  • For peace in our world at this time of such dreadful violence, persecution and war, and for the abolition of all nuclear weapons.   We pray also for the millions of refugees.
