PRAYER FOR YEMEN

07/02/19

Giver of Life, Who hears the cries from Yemen; of mothers choosing between medicine or food, of parents grieving children lost to starvation, of those who have given up everything in hunger.

Hear our cries for hope, for change, for peace In your mercy, Break political deadlocks, Soften hardened hearts, Change closed minds, Open unhearing ears. Let people come before power. Let life be holy again. Let your justice and peace shape the nation of Yemen. And the lives of all people.

Amen

ROSARY FOR THE UNBORN

20/01/19

The Knights of St Columba are marking the 100th anniversary of their foundation by a prayer project for the unborn which will run throughout 2019. They have asked SPUC to assist them in requesting all parishes to hold a monthly Rosary for the Unborn before the exposed Blessed Sacrament, with a different pro-life intention each month.

In Melton, we will pray the Rosary on the first Saturday of the month, after Mass, at morning Adoration in St. John's, starting on 2 February. If you are unable to get to church, please join in by saying the Rosary for this intention at home.
