The Prayer of the Faithful
Preparing and leading the Prayer of the Faithful is an important ministry in the life of the parish community. Depending on the circumstances, it may be performed by a Deacon, a Reader, or by others chosen for the role.
The Prayer of the Faithful gathers the many prayers of the community into one: it should include the present needs of the community, and of the wider Church and the World.
A guide for preparing the Prayer of the Faithful has been produced for use in the diocese, and can be reproduced freely.
