Our Novena to Our Lady of the Assumption, patroness of our parish church, takes place each year from 7th – 15th August.
PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF THE ASSUMPTION
Immaculate Virgin, Mother of Jesus and our Mother,
we believe in your triumphant Assumption into heaven
where the angels and saints acclaim you
as Queen of Heaven and earth.
We join them in praising you
and bless the Lord who raised you above all creatures.
With them we honour you.
We are confident that you watch over our daily lives
and we ask that you intercede for us now.
(Mention your request)
We are comforted by our faith in the coming Resurrection
and we look to you for prayers and comfort.
After this earthly life, show us Jesus,
the blessed fruit of your womb,
O kind, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
O Queen Assumed into Heaven, pray for us. Amen.
