My heartfelt thanks for the Family Primetime Prayertime. It’s 1.30 am for me when this is streamed, so when I can’t make it, I usually replay the program at sometime between 3 and 5 am. Congratulations on the sincere and practical approach to life in this troubled world. I’m not sure of the names of the two priests, which I think are Frs Ashwin and Lance(?). Would like to find out their full names.

I hope such devotions continue. A wonderful use of social media in your evangelisation. God bless you and your endeavours.

Please remember my loved ones and myself in your prayers.

From the year 1979-80 on wards am a devotee to Mother Mary and used to participate in the Novenas of Wednesdays, the favors and blessings received by me and the prayers are many. I affirm that the blessings from these Novenas are abundant through our Mothers intercession to Triune God, Father, Son and Holi Spirit. Its a testing time for all of us and we shall continue to submit our prayers to get rid of this anarchy from COVID-19, hunting the world population. Let us depose ourselves for Mother Mary’s intercession to get rid of this peril.

God Day! I have really been enjoying & feel extremely blessed for last many months to be able to attend Mass on-line on You Tube. However for past 3-4 weeks I am unable to attend mass on line on You Tube. Has it been removed or is it a glitch on my side.
I have grown to depend on my Wednesday Date with Mother Mary & miss it a lot!
Please assist.
God Bless

I started going for the Our Lady of Perpetual Succor Novenas since 1976 when I was 15 years old and I continue with the same faith that Mother Mary always intercedes for us for all the supplications we present before her. She is our heavenly Mother of all of us.
St. Michael Church has been my strength in all my problems and weaknesses. It is a special place in my heart .I feel relived everytime i visit the church.

Till in heaven eternally,
    Thy love and bliss I share.

OCCASIONAL PRAYERS 
( For Personal use only) 

THE SIGN OF THE CROSS 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen 

HE OUR FATHER 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. 

THE HAIL MARY 

Hail Mary , full of grace , the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst 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. 

THE APOSTLES CREED 

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into Heven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communication of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the ressurection of the body, and the life everlasting, Amen. 

THE HAIL HOLY QUEEN 

Hail, holy Queen Mother of mercy, hail , our life our sweetness and our hope. Thee do we cry poor banished children of Even; to thee do we sigh mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Oh then, our advocate, turn thine eyes of mercy towards us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O merciful, O living, O Sweet Virgin Mary.
