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
October 2017 Pray With Pope Francis This month, Pope Francis asks us to pray that the rights of workers and the unemployed will be respected. Work is one of the fundamental human rights. Let us make an effort so that everyone has access to employment in dignified conditions. “We should always remember the dignity and rights of those who work, condemn situations in which that dignity and those rights are violated, and help to ensure authentic progress by man and society. Let us pray that all workers may receive respect and protection of their rights, and that the unemployed may receive the opportunity to contribute to the common good.”
