Our Parish Prayer Intention

During Lent, you are invited to join your voice with all
St Vincent voices as we pray daily for our Parish Prayer Intention (below).  Please pray this often.

Lord, as you took Peter, James and John up the mountain to be with You and so be changed by Your glory, help us to find this week a higher place and privileged time to invite other people to be with You to share the marvel of Your goodness (for example, at the Oratory of St. Mary Magdalene).
              Our Father…  |  Hail Mary…  |  Glory be...

Prayer for Priests
Father, you have chosen your priests from among us and sent them out to proclaim your Word and to act in your name.  For this great gift to your Church, we give you praise and thanksgiving.  Inspire them through prayer to live each day the mystery of your dying and rising, through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
