August Prayer

 ‘A praying parish is a growing parish ; a growing parish is a praying parish .‘ Please join us in praying for the following intentions this month.


  • For the Church, our Holy Father the Pope and all bishops, priests and deacons, especially our Bishop Michael, and the priests of this parish that they may continue to lead us to the safety of the fold of Christ the King and true shepherd.
  • That through the prayers of St. John Marie Vianney, humble priest and tireless confessor, the Lord may call many in our community and in our diocese to leave all things and follow Him for the glory of God and the salvation of souls.
  • That through the intercession of Mary assumed into heaven Queen of the Universe and Lady of Knock individuals and communities may grow in holiness and our country may never lose the faith to which our forefathers adhered and bequeathed to us despite persecution through the ages.
  • For the sick and dying in their own homes, in hospital and in nursing homes that they may have the comfort of the sacraments and the prayers of the community as they prepare to meet the Lord. For all carers: may they may appreciate the importance of religion in the holistic care of the sick.
  • For the Pope’s intention for August – that artists through their ingenuity may help us to discover the beauty of creation.
  • For hose who do not yet know God or his Son Jesus Christ that through our prayers they may find the pearl of great price and be prepared to buy it.

Thank You for hearing our prayers. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary , Gloria.
