We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion

O God,

whose blessed Son came into the world

that he might destroy the works of evil

and make us your children and heirs of eternal life:

grant that, having this hope,

we may purify ourselves as he is pure;

that, when he comes again with power and great glory,

we may be made like him in his eternal

and glorious kingdom;

where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Give thanks for the faithful people of our parish.
