The Fifteenth Sunday after Trinity

 

9.15 a.m.   Angelus & Prayers

 

10.00 a.m.   Parish Mass & Sunday School

 

At 9.55 a prayer will be said, the calling bell rung, we then pray silently in preparation for Mass.    If you are looking for something to use, the Psalm of the Day is 145:1-8.

 

Children aged three and over may gather by the font during the Introit hymn to go to Sunday School.   They will return in time to receive their blessing at the Altar rail.

 

Collect:

God, who in generous mercy sent the Holy Spirit upon your Church in the burning fire of your love:  grant that your people may be fervent in the fellowship of the gospel that, always abiding in you, they may be found steadfast in faith and active in service; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.   Amen.

 

Reading:

Jonah 3:10 – 4:11

 

Response to Psalm:

I will bless your name for ever, O God my King

 

Gospel Reading:

St Matthew 20:1-16

 

Communion Meditation:

Nothing can trouble (hymn 347)

 

Post Communion Prayer:  Keep, O Lord, your Church, with your perpetual mercy; and, because without you our human frailty cannot but fall, keep us ever by your help from all things hurtful, and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen.

Today is also the Lesser Festival of

Our Lady of Walsingham

Most holy Virgin, I kneel  in spirit before your Shrine at Walsingham, that sanctuary blessed by your visits, favours and many miracles.   I unite myself with all those who ever sought you, and seek you now, in that holy place.   Especially I unite my intentions with those of the Priests who offer the holy sacrifice there.   I offer you my life and devotions, asking you to remember that I am numbered among the pilgrims who have sought your intercession in the Sanctuary of your choice.   I renew my promises and intentions made when I last made my pilgrimage.   Dear Mother, Our Lady of Walsingham, remember me.  Amen.
