Welcome to Saint Michael's Catholic Church, Pollards Hill
"Always pray and never give up" - Luke 18:1
As we face the threats posed by the covid-19 coronavirus the world over, Father Innocent prays for everyone. Let us seek the face of God as children of God. Father Innocent shall continue with celebration of Mass as your Priest and Spiritual guide.
Join on-line at http://www.churchservices.tv/stmichaels to pray for all those who have died as well as their grieving dear ones, for all who are affected, for all who are sick and suffering, for all those who work in the medical profession and for God to lead us to a lasting solution. Let us join hands and pray God to heal our world. The Mass times this period have been slightly modified.
Covid-19 coronavirus is a threat to humanity. This threat has the ability to bring out the best and/or the worst in people's lives. The word "corona" means "crown". Let us take a "crown" out of the virus pandemic caused by covid-19; make the best out of this situation. One thing is certain, God is with us, we are not alone! "The LORD of host is with us, the God of Jacob is our stronghold" Psalm 46:8. Stay safe!
THE CORONA VIRUS PRAYER
Father in Heaven, have mercy on us and on the whole world. We come to you today with our fears and concerns -- You know what's in our hearts. We love You, We trust You, we need You. We ask You to be with us. Stay with us. Help us through these times of uncertainty and sorrow. We know you are the Divine Physician, the healer of all. And so we ask that you bring your loving and healing presence to all those who are sick and suffering right now. Please comfort them. Please be with the grieving families of those who have passed away. Please have mercy on those who have died, may they be with You in heaven. Please stand at the side of all medical professionals who are putting themselves at risk while they work to bring healing to others. Lord, we are scared and we are sorrowful. Please heal us. Send us your peace and overwhelming presence. + Mary, Undoer of Knots, please pray for the knot of this virus to be undone for the greater glory of God! Jesus, we thirst for You. You chose to enter this world as a vulnerable baby. Be with the most vulnerable now. Help us to continue to return to You with our whole hearts throughout this ordeal. Grant our prayers through Christ Our Lord Amen.
V: Mary, Health of the sick
R: Pray for us

Novena Prayer: Day 1-9
O most pure Virgin Mary conceived without sin, from the very first instant, you were entirely immaculate. O glorious Mary full of grace, you are the mother of my God – the Queen of Angels and of men. I humbly venerate you as the chosen mother of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. The Prince of Peace and the Lord of Lords chose you for the singular grace and honour of being His beloved mother. By the power of His Cross, He preserved you from all sin. Therefore, by His power and love, I have hope and bold confidence in your prayers for my holiness and salvation. I pray that your prayers will bring me to imitate your holiness and submission to Jesus and the Divine Will. Queen of Heaven, I beg you to beg my Saviour to grant me these requests… (Mention your intentions)
My holy Mother, I know that you were obedient to the will of God. In making this petition, I know that God’s will is more perfect than mine. So, grant that I may receive God’s grace with humility as you did. As my final request, I ask that you pray for me to increase in faith in our risen Lord; I ask that you pray for me to increase in hope in our risen Lord; I ask that you pray for me to increase in love for the risen Jesus! Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
