A Prayer for Mothers on Mother's Day

All-loving God, we give you thanks and praise for mothers young and old.

We pray for young mothers, who give life and count toes and tend to our every need; May they be blessed with patience and tenderness to care for their families and themselves with great joy.

We pray for our own mothers who have nurtured and cared for us; May they continue to guide us in strong and gentle ways.

We remember mothers who are separated from their children because of war, poverty, or conflict; May they feel the loving embrace of our God who wipes every tear away.

Pilgrimage Contribution Scheme

Dear Pilgrim,

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you about our Pilgrimage Contribution Scheme.

The purpose of the scheme is to help the Lourdes  pilgrimage committee meet the ever increasing financial costs, which it faces year on year, as it endeavours to organise the diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes each summer.
