We pray for all the children preparing for the sacrament of 1st Holy Communion.  


For our Candidates;

may the light of Christ help us to see your brightness

reflected through God’s glory in the world around us,


Lord of light:

Shine through us.


For the Candidates

may the light of Christ and the promise of eternal life

turn the darkness of sadness and despair you encounter

into the joy of hope and peace.


Lord of light:

Shine through us.

Listen to the words of the prophet Isaiah

The LORD God is waiting to show you how kind he is and to have pity on you. 

The LORD always does right,

And he blesses everyone who trusts him.


The word of the Lord.
