Prayer for Our Parish

GOD, Holy Ghost, Sanctifier of the faithful, visit, we pray thee, our parish with thy love and favour. Grant unto us all things needful for our spiritual welfare.

Guide and uphold thy priests, strengthen and increase the faithful, bless and protect the children.

Visit and relieve the sick, arouse the careless, restore the penitent.

Remove all hindrances to the advancement of thy truth, and bring all to be of one mind within the fold of thy holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord, whom with the Father and thee, O blessed Spirit, we worship and glorify as one God, world without end. Amen.

Collect for Ascension Day

GRANT, we beseech thee, Almighty God, that like as we do believe thy only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to have ascended into the heavens; so we may also in heart and mind thither ascend, and with him continually dwell, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Collect for the Feast of St. Agnes

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who dost choose the weak things of the world to confound those things that are strong: mercifully grant that we who keep the feast of blessed Agnes thy Virgin and Martyr, may feel the succor of her intercession in thy sight. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom with thee and the Holy Ghost be all honor and glory, both now and unto ages of ages. Amen
