The Worship department aims to facilitate our growth in unity as a local Church through our joyful and prayerful liturgical celebrations. In our role as a resource to the Bishop and as collaborators with the parishes and priests of the diocese, we are ready to connect you with information, materials, and formation opportunities to promote that unity.
A Prayer for the Sick
God our Father
we come to You in our need
to ask Your protection against the coronavirus
that has claimed lives
and has affected many.
We pray for Your grace
for the people tasked with studying the nature and cause
of this virus and its disease
and of stemming the tide of its transmission.
Guide the hands and minds of medical experts
that they may minister to the sick
with competence and compassion
and of those governments and private agencies
that must find a cure and solution to this epidemic.
We pray for those afflicted.
May they be restored to health soon.
Grant us the grace
to work for the good of all
and to help those in need.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son
who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God forever and ever. Amen.
