Let us pray the Parish Mission will help us to

beyond!
The following was sent to Peter Fawcett from
his brother, Fr. Stephen Fawcett, whom many
of you know After having received your prayer
request for St Francis Xavier's Parish Mission, I
e-mailed all my 59 brother priests in the house
here. I have lost count of the responses promising
prayers for you. As you know, this is a house for
American priests, and they are, to a man, very
passionate about the power of shared prayer... So
count on our prayers. May God bless your parish
family; may Mary draw you all ever closer to her
Son, may St Michael protect you from the devil,
who won't like at all what you're doing, and may
St Francis Xavier renew in all of you the power
and beauty of your baptism. In Christ, Fr. Stephen.

Parish Mission Prayer
Loving God, Creator and Giver of all things,
bless our Parish Mission.
Send Your Spirit to renew our faith
And help us spread the joy of the salvation
that Your Son wrought for us.
Grant us Your grace, that we may serve our
community,
glorify You, and be sanctified ourselves.
We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen
Our Lady, Cause of our Joy, pray for us.
St. Francis Xavier, pray for us.
St. John Kemble, pray for us.
