The Parish Prayer

GOD OUR FATHER, send your Holy Spirit upon the people of this parish.  Give us a greater love for all.  Make us more compassionate for the sick, the lonely, and all in need, more zealous in the inspiration of the young, more concerned about the wider mission of the Church, and more generous in our giving of service and money.  Help each one of us to know what we ought to do, and give us strength and courage faithfully to do it, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

(Written by Father Bill Weston, Rector of St. John’s 1979 to 1991)
