Pope Francis met with fossil fuel CEOs and their major investors in the Vatican. In very clear terms, he told them, “Faced with a climate emergency, we must take action accordingly.” See Vatican website (link) for details.
we thank you for gathering us together
and for calling us to serve as your disciples.
You have charged us through your Son Jesus
with the great mission of evangelising and of witnessing your love to the world.
Send your Holy Spirit to guide us as we discern your will
for the spiritual renewal of our parish.
Give us strength, courage, and clear vision as we use our gifts to serve you.
We entrust our parish family to the care of St Mary of the Angels, our Mother,
and ask for her intercession as we strive to bear witness to the Gospel
and build an AMAZING parish.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
