Time of Prayer and Reflection for Ossory Priests @ St Kieran's College
Nov 8 @ 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm

The Bishop of Limerick, Most Rev. Brendan Leahy, is to lead a time of prayer and reflection for the priests of Ossory as we await the appointment of a new Bishop of our Diocese. Bishop Brendan will attend on Wednesday 8th November 2017, and the evening will take place in St Kieran’s College from 2.30pm – 5.30pm.

The final paragraph in A Prayer for Ossory will set the theme for the evening;

“As we await a new bishop we pray that you will help find for us a man to lead with vision for our future, understanding for our present and compassion for our past.  Until then, may we work actively together to continue to realise not only your desire for us but also for your kingdom.”

A Prayer for Ossory

A Prayer for Ossory

Loving Father,

Our Diocese is alive with those who care for others in the service of the Gospel; so many offer themselves, their talents and their time in Ossory. 

Our parishes are places of welcome for all; our schools, communities, groups and homes, work to bring the Christian message of hope alive so that it is felt by those who need it most.  

Bless our parishes where we live, work and celebrate faith. 

Bless our homes where faith is first taught.

Bless our schools where young people learn to grow as you intended them. 

Bless all who care for the sick and those in need, bringing hope and healing to the lives of so many of our brothers and sisters. 

Bless all those entrusted with the task of ministering to your people as parents, teachers, priests, religious, members of pastoral councils and many other community groups.

As we await a new Bishop we pray that you will help find for us a man to lead with vision for our future, understanding for our present and compassion for our past. Until then, may we work actively together to continue to realise not only your desire for us but also for your kingdom.

We ask this through the intercession of St Kieran and though Christ our Lord. 

Amen
