Almighty and merciful Father,

bestow your grace upon the Diocese of Brentwood

as we celebrate our Centenary Year.

We give thanks for the witness of past generations

and pray for a fresh  outpouring of the Holy Spirit

that we may be ever more faithful to

proclaiming the Gospel of Christ.

Bless Alan our Bishop, the Clergy, Religious

and Faithful of our Diocese,

and graciously grant plentiful vocations to the Priesthood,

the Consecrated Life and the Sacrament of Marriage.

Strengthen us in the communion of faith, hope and charity,

united in prayer with our Holy Father the Pope

and the Universal Church.


Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.


Saints Erconwald, Cedd and Edmund of Canterbury, pray for us.
