REMEMBERING THE DEAD
This weekend and throughout November we remember the saints and souls of those who have died. We invite you to write the names of your deceased family members and friends in our Book of the Names of the Dead located in front of St Bernadette.
We have also added a prayer box in the Narthex by the candle bank where you can place your deceased family members and friends names to add to our parish community’s prayers of the Faithful Departed. Light a candle and recited the Eternal rest prayer found in front of the candle bank. Please take a prayer care for the Holy Souls in Purgatory on All Souls Day to add to your prayers this month.
ST. BERNADETTE PARISH RENEWAL PRAYER
Heavenly Father, thank you for gathering us together as St. Bernadette Parish. We come before you, conscious of our failings, united in Your name and longing for your blessing.
Lord Jesus, grant us wisdom and forgiveness. Teach us to grow, love, share, and renew our lives. Help us to learn from the past and enter confidently into the future. Help us to cherish, value and respect one another as the Body of Christ.
Holy Spirit, inspire us to offer our gifts and talents where needed. Help us to become flames of faith, hope and love, in our families, in our communities, and in our workplaces. Help us to tend to the needy and the sick, to welcome the stranger and the outcast.
Holy Trinity, guide us as we discern Your will for the spiritual renewal and growth of our parish. Come to us, remain with us, and enlighten our path. You desire justice for all; enable us to uphold the rights of others. Through patience, love, and true charity lead us forward in Your Light.
St. Bernadette, pray for us. St. Boniface, pray for us. All Holy men and women, pray for us.
