A Coronovirus Prayer >>>>

Lord Jesus Christ, you travelled through towns and villages curing every disease and illness. At your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love. 


Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care.

Heal us from our fear, which prevents nations from working together and neighbours from helping one another.

Heal us from our pride, which can make us claim invulnerability to a disease that knows no borders.


Lord Jesus Christ, healer of all, stay by our side in this time of uncertainty and sorrow.

Be with those who have died from the virus. 

May they be at rest with you in your eternal peace.

Be with the families of those who are sick or have died.

As they worry and grieve, defend them from illness and despair.

May they know your peace.


Be with the doctors, nurses, researchers and all medical professionals, who seek to heal and help those affected and who put themselves at risk in the process.

May they know your protection and peace.


Be with the leaders of all nations give them the foresight to act with charity and true concern for the well-being of the people they are meant to serve.

Give them the wisdom to invest in long-term solutions that will help prepare for or prevent future outbreaks.

May they know your peace, as they work together to achieve it on earth.


Whether we're home or abroad, surrounded by many people suffering from this illness or only a few, Lord Jesus Christ, stay with us as we endure and mourn, persist and prepare.

In place of our anxiety give us your peace.

Lord Jesus Christ heal us.

Dispensation from Easter Duties >>>>>

posted 27 Mar 2020, 11:37 by St Marys Crowborough   [ updated 27 Mar 2020, 11:38 ]

Many of the faithful will be aware of their Easter Duties to receive Holy Communion during the Easter Season and by custom to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation beforehand. As is it not possible for the faithful to receive Holy Communion at this time the Bishops have asked that all should make a perfect Act of Contrition.

"My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should ove above al things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our saviour Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy."
