All praise and glory are yours, loving Father, maker and ruler of the universe; we praise you for calling us to be your people, your beloved sons and daughters. Guide our community as we try to follow Jesus. Fill us with love for those in need of our help, and open our hearts to all. Let your Spirit teach us to serve in love and to praise you by our work and worship.

Father of all, we praise you through Jesus Christ, our brother, in the love of your Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.

Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us. St Bernadette, pray for us.
