Essential information

Prayer Resources

For Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament:

Most of the Bishop's Holy Hour is in silence, but there are ways you can join him in prayer. Word on fire have a guide on how to make a Holy Hour available here, or there's a seven-step guide to holy hours here.

Prayer for Renewal of the Diocese:

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, we beg you to change us, to convert us and to make us holy. Fill us with a deeper faith, hope and love for you. Send into our hearts the cleansing fire of the Holy Spirit and powerfully renew all the clergy, religious and laity of our Diocese.

Unite us in love and respect for one another and unify us as your one, holy people. Grant us a new passion and zeal for the Catholic Faith, for mission, outreach and service.


Help us to proclaim your Gospel generously to the poor and needy that many more souls may be saved by finding their way to you in your Church. May Mary Immaculate help us. May St Edmund of Abingdon and Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati pray for us. Amen.
