Prayer for the Diocesan Vision
Spirit of God, descend on me this day. Grant me the Spirit of joy, to lift me, the Spirit of hope to inspire me, the Spirit of love to surround me and the Spirit of truth to enlighten my path. Holy Spirit, I pray for a new outpouring of your grace, so that I may grow in worship of your name in love of you in my prayer and in my actions towards others. Come Holy Spirit into my life to guide me. Strengthen and defend me, so that I may be drawn ever closer to you. Help me this day and always to be a channel of grace in all I say and do and invite others into relationship with you. Amen.
News from the Catholic Bishops' Conference
An extract from a recent update from the Bishops of England and Wales....
Since the beginning of the Covid pandemic, until the present time, we have shared with you our judgment that the situation of the last two years has meant that the Sunday Obligation has been impeded and has needed to be fulfilled in other ways. We thank God that this situation has now changed. The pressing challenges of the pandemic have lessened significantly. Most people have resumed the wide range of normal activities, no longer restricted by the previous Covid measures. We therefore believe that the reasons which have prevented Catholics from attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation no longer apply.

If you are unable to attend Mass you are encouraged to be faithful in prayer and acts of Spiritual Communion.
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
A Prayer of Spiritual Communion for Vocations to the Priesthood
Lord Jesus Christ,
Eternal High Priest,
offered as a Sacrifice on the Cross
to take away the sins of the world:
I unite myself with your sacrifice on the altar,
with the Eucharist which I cannot receive.
You have given to your Church the Sacrament of Baptism
through which your people are made holy.
You have given to your Church the Sacrament of the Priesthood
by which the banquet of the Eucharist is set before us.
I pray today for all priests,
who through their consecration
make present in your Church
your real and abiding presence.
I thank you for the gift of the Priesthood.
I praise your wonderful presence in the Eucharist.
