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.


16th Week in Ordinary Time

July 15 – 28, 2018

In the Archdiocese of Adelaide, at the direction of Bishop Greg O'Kelly SJ, Apostolic Administrator, we will be celebrating the Feast of St Mary Magdalene, apostle to the Apostles.

For the convenience I have included the Universal Prayer for the Archdiocese, and a separate one for Dioceses, Archdioceses, and Communities beyond this place.

We extend greetings to those parishes and communities who honour St Anne as their patron this week.

With best wishes
Maurice Shinnick
