Week of Prayer

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

You are warmly invited to join together in a Week of Prayer to the Holy Spirit for the renewal of the Church in Dublin from May 29 to June 6 – Ascension Sunday through Pentecost to the Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church.

Your Week of Prayer resource booklet can be accessed here.

The period covers many interesting feasts and scripture quotations. There is a four-line prayer each day which uses the Building Hope Prayer as its base with relevant additions. There is also a mixture of Introductions to the Liturgy, Reflections after the Gospel and a Litany that you might find useful.

Next Monday, May 23, at 8.30pm you can get a flavour of these resources by connecting to the www.rednuns.com webcam. The Sisters of the Monastery of St Alphonsus will lead the prayerful reflections with a bonus offering of music from the Dublin Diocesan Music Group. If you can’t make it for the live presentation, check out the recordings section of the monastery website afterwards, where you will find the resource. The attached booklet, one page per day, will be your companion for this 30-minute presentation.

Please feel free to use the material as you wish. You might like to print it as a booklet for use in your parish as you pray together.
