Pope Francis invites you to pray with the whole world


altAs inspiration for our prayer during these challenging times, Pope Francis has made an appeal for special prayers by the Church around the world today.  He is asking that Catholics all over the world, either individually or in community, to recite the Lord’s Prayer at 12.00 noon on Wednesday next, 25th March.

If you would like to join in community, Fr Binoy, Mountview Church,  will have the celebration at 12 noon today on webcam (https://mountviewblakestownparish.ie/web-cam/) to consecrate Ireland and her people to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for protection from the Corona Virus.

In addition, the Pope invites Catholics of the entire world to unite themselves spiritually with him in a Prayer Service from Saint Peter’s Square on Friday next, 27 March, at 18.00.  The prayer will conclude with Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament imparted “Urbi et Orbi”.  To all who unite themselves spiritually with the Holy Father a Plenary Indulgence will be granted. 

Please pass on details to other friends and parishioners to enable people to join together spiritually during these times.
