Prayers of the Faithful
Every week a large amount of requests are often personally made in prayer, asking God for something, or indeed giving thanks for something received. This is done perhaps silently, maybe by lighting a candle, or even by asking a friend to pray for a particular petition.
The Prayers of the Faithful hold an important place in the context of the Sunday Mass. In many ways they give us the opportunity to bring our prayers and our needs right to the heart of our great Christian celebration.
In an effort to make this more real, and to make our Prayers reflect the real needs of our faith community; we are asking people to please write your personal petition, or thanksgiving on a piece of paper and place it in the boxes provided. These prayers will be remembered at all of our masses and some will be prayed aloud in a general way (that is to say without names etc..) at our Sunday Masses.
The Petitions can be filled out and placed the box in each of the churches in our parish.
May the good Lord listen to our prayers.

In case of emergency
We have had lots of ice lately - but what of ice on your phone?
ICE is a programme that enables first responders, such as ambulance crews, fire-brigade and guards to identify contact information in an emergency. According to this programme people are encouraged to enter emergency contacts in their mobile phone address book under the name "ICE", or even "ICE1", "ICE2", etc. which can then be used in emergency situations.
