Our Prayers
Hail Mary,  full of Grace The Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of Thy Womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Holy Queen Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy! Our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.

The names of all the sick people in our parish can be found in a book at the back of each of our three churches, The English Martyrs, Chard, St. Joseph’s, Ilminster and St. Peter’s, Crewkerne. You can add the name of anyone who is sick in your family or in the parish, include any friend or anyone in the community we belong to. The books will be included in the offertory procession, and placed on the Altar. There is always somebody in need of our prayers. Please note that the list will be updated on a monthly basis.
The Pope Video and Our Prayers
The Pope Video 01-2018 – Religious Minorities in Asia – January 2018 Difficult in some places than in others. Asia is one of these places. Here, Christianity is a minority religion, and like other minorities, Christians often suffer persecution. Let us pray that all religions, also those that are minorities, are given the freedom that sometimes today on the Asian continent, they are lacking. “In the vastly diversified cultural world of Asia, the Church faces many risks and her task is made more difficult by the fact of her being a minority. These risks, these challenges are shared with other minority religious traditions, with whom we share a desire for wisdom, truth and holiness. Let us pray for all of them, so that Christians, and other religious minorities in Asian countries, may be able to practice their faith in full freedom.”
