A prayer from St Mary’s Weekly
Lord Jesus, we give thanks for the people and places that make up our community.
Give us grace to love and serve one another, as you have loved and served us, for the support of those in need, and for the glorifying of your name Amen

Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe.
