Daily Prayers

A useful rule of life can involve the saying of prayers each day when we wake and before we go to sleep. These prayers don't have to be long, in a set form or use big words.  Some people find a daily routine helps them and others do prefer having a set of prayers which they know other Christians throughout the world are using.  One such resource is called Universalis and on this site you'll find prayers for the whole day - along with the readings used at Mass - which are shared by Christians throughout the world.


Making sure the whole Church family is safe is an important part of what we do here.  Full details can be found here.
