We would like to thank you for all your prayers and support over the past few months. You will have likely heard of a recent parliamentary win, wherein an attempt to hijack the UK Government’s flagship Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill with two extreme abortion proposals failed. This would not have been possible without the support of you and your congregations. By contacting your MPs and sharing your disapproval of these amendments, it was made clear to MPs that these amendments lacked the support of their constituents and so were prevented from becoming law, leading to the likely saving of many lives.
In light of all this, we continue to reach out in request of prayers from all parishioners. Each week during the month of August we will have an intention for you to pray for:
- Week of 8th August - “We pray for all women going through unexpected pregnancies, that they would experience peace and support in this circumstance, and recognise the many blessings that motherhood brings. Lord hear us.”
- Week of 15th August - Yesterday we celebrated the feast of St Maximilian Kolbe, patron saint of the pro-life movement. On this feast of the Assumption, we ask for his intercession, along with Our Lady’s, as we the church seek to support all pregnant mothers through their pregnancies, and that we would become models of support and charity to all in society. Lord hear us.”
- Week of the 22nd - “We pray for the families and friends of pregnant women. That theywould recognise their responsibility to care for both the mother and child, and that they would shower them with love and support through the journey of pregnancy and beyond. Lord hear us.”
- Week of the 29th - “We bring to mind the words from James in our second reading and his call to look after those in need. We pray that, as a church, we would improve how we look after those who are experiencing difficulty in their pregnancies and provide the care and support they need in welcoming their child to the world. Lord hear us.”
