Praying for our Partnerships at Pentecost


Come, Holy Spirit, upon all who are labouring to give birth to new ideas and ways of being. Give comfort to those who are apprehensive, confidence to those who are preparing for change, and trust in your guidance. Give us all a sense of deep security and hope, founded on our

confident trust in God’s everlasting love. 


Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…
