Special Prayers & Groups


Lord Jesus I cannot receive you Sacramentally at this time but I ask you to come into my heart and soul to be with me.
May your loving Presence in me bring your love to all through my words and actions, Amen.


Lord, I live on my own but I remember you are with me. Sometimes I am content but sometimes I would like some company so in those moments help me to remember you are with me. There are days when it would be good to see a family member or friend but in this time of isolation it's not possible to meet in person. Help me to remember you are with me. I want to think of everyone else in the parish and in the world who live on their own. Thinking of everyone else who lives like me makes us into a community. Help me and all of us to remember you are with me. Amen


Lord, as parishioners of St. Joan’s we think of our parish family at this time. Bless everyone in our parish, we look forward to being together in our Church building once again to worship you. We are kept together through our prayers for each other and through our love for each other.
Bless everyone on the frontlines of dealing with this virus. Keep them safe.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

God bless us all

A Prayer for our local hospitals
and hospice

Lord, bless all those who work in our local hospitals and who work in our Hospice. At this time when no one is allowed to visit in hospital we ask you to bless the hospital chaplains who can, from a distance, say hello to all the patients. Help them to bring encouragement to patients and staff alike. Through our prayers for them may patients, staff, chaplains and volunteers in our hospitals and hospice know that they are being remembered by us. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations are free email reflections sent every day of the year. Each meditation features a reflection on a yearly theme, with each week building on previous topics—though you can join at any time! The theme this year is
A Time of Unveiling. Despite the uncertainty and disorder, our present moment is a great opportunity to awaken to deeper transformation, love, and hope. Sign-up here to receive the Meditations.

There is a weekly Saturday morning Zoom-based discussion group to explore the meditations.
