Prayer as we prepare to return to public Masses

Almighty, ever-living God,

be with us as we prepare

to return to the celebration of Eucharist in our parish church.

Calm our fears and anxieties as we reconnect with each other

as a community of faith.

Fill us with joy as we come together

as the Body of Christ around the table of word and sacrament.

Stay with us on this journey as together

we re-imagine the living of the Gospel

in this new time for our world.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns

with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever Amen
