Universal Prayer for Sunday and weekday Masses

Prayers of the faithful


These prayers are exactly what their name suggests – prayers of the gathered faithful. In praying this prayer, the faithful are carrying out their role of praying for the entire world as well as for the needs of the local community.

No two congregations will have exactly the same prayers, since their perception of the world's needs and of the local community will vary. Therefore they are written anew for each Sunday and weekly celebrations.

September 29 - October 5, 2019

This approaching Sunday (Sept 29) in the Australian Catholic Church is known as Social Justice Sunday.

For those parishes and communities OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA I have included an alternative set of Intercessions.

They follow immediately after the first set for Australia. 

May we all pray for Pope Francis on the Memorial of St Francis and as he prepared for the Amazon Synod starting on Sunday 6th October.
