In light of the most recent lockdowns, we are pleased to be launching our Holy Cross Perimeter of Prayer! Fr. Andrew introduces our latest initiative inviting us to pray to Our Lady of Divine Love for her intercession to an end to the pandemic as has been asked by the Holy Father, Pope Francis.
View Fr. Andrew’s video message below. Links to download a copy of the Icon of Our Lady of Divine Love and the Prayer of Pope Francis are also available.
We look forward to sharing your images as we surround our parish with a Perimeter of Prayer during this pandemic.

Prayer Of Pope Francis to Our Lady of Divine Love to Protect the World During the Coronavirus Pandemic
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection.
Under your protection, we seek refuge,
Holy Mother of God.
Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
