The people of the Diocese have been asked to pray for our Bishop, Priests, Religious, Directors and Delegates as they gather to discern and plan for our way forward.  Please join in saying the following prayer in the lead up to and during the Diocesan Assembly


Creator God, Life is your gift to me.

Through baptism, you invite me to share the gift of my life in service to others.  Be with me as I choose each day to show Your Presence in our world.

 Give me the courage and generosity to respond to Your love, to Your call. 

I pray especially for those who gather at the Diocesan Assembly that they may bear witness to all that has been said during the listening phase and find the words and vision to respond to the call of our community.

Open our minds and hearts so that we may accept Your challenge to build the Kingdom in our Diocese. 

We ask this prayer through Christ our Lord.  Amen


As a community of believers,
we live out the call of Baptism through personal faith in Jesus,
witnessing together to the Good News of the Kingdom.


St Joseph, pray for us.
St Mary of the Cross, pray for us.
