Pioneer Association to gather in honour of the Sacred Heart
The Pioneer Association in each of the parishes in St Patrick’s Cathedral Pastoral Area will come together for a special Mass in St Malachy’s Church, Armagh on Wednesday 6th June at 7.30pm. Pioneers from the parishes of Armagh, Keady & Derrynoose, Killcluney and Tynan and Middletown will join together in prayer in preparation for the feast. People are encouraged to join on the evening, to pray for a greater spirit of temperance in our world and in our local communities. A special invitation is extended to all Primary Seven Pupils from each of the Primary Schools in the Pastoral Area who have become young Probationers this year. On the evening, they will have an opportunity to renew their commitment to the pledge they have made.
Novena Prayer to the Sacred Heart
Lord Jesus Christ, your heart was moved with love for the men and women who came for help in their need. You healed the sick, you fed the hungry, you forgave sinners, you cried over Jerusalem. Above all, you showed to those who were prepared to listen the way to true life, for you are the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Lord, your heart is still moved today by your people and their many needs. Open our hearts to hear your word, to accept your love, and to respond to your call. In particular, I beg you to grant me the favour I ask during this novena (make your request silently), provided that it will contribute to my own eternal good and to the building up of your kingdom of justice, peace and love here on earth.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.
