This resource is for use in the week beginning with the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord, through Pentecost and continuing to the Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church. You are warmly invited to join together in a period of prayer to the Holy Spirit for the renewal of the Church in Dublin. May this time of prayer for every parish in the Archdiocese be blessed and build hope for a new future and a new way of being Church.
The period covers many interesting feasts and scripture quotations. There is a four-line prayer each day which uses the Building Hope Prayer as its base. The full prayer is also reproduced for use each day after Communion.
Other resources include a variety of material; Introductions to the Liturgy, Reflections after the Gospel and a Litany that you might find useful. These resources, one page per day, will be your companion for the week of prayer. The images incorporated can be used as slides to assist the congregation.
Please feel free to use this material as you wish. Let us, as a diocese, try to say the short daily prayer as part of the Gospel reflection/homily in addition to the Building Hope Prayer after Communion.
