 Welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church

Following the President of the Republic'c announcement regarding the the shut down from the 27 March 2020 to 16 April. Kindly note that for the duration of the National lockdown, the church will be closed until further notice. There will be no Masses celebrated. Please join Father Paul in praying the Divine Mercy Prayers everyday at 3:00pm. Stay safe with your families at home. 

Prayer Time during Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Lockdown 

  1. Pray the rosary and other devotional prayers daily 
  2. Do spiritual reading and spend some time in reflection
  3. On Sundays read the scripture readings as set out in the Missal and make the act of Spiritual Communion. (See below) 
  4. Together as a parish let us in our different homes pray the Divine Mercy Prayers at 3:00pm each day (see below)  

ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION 

When we receive the sacrament of Holy Communion, "we unite ourselves to Chirst, who makes us shares in his Body and Blood to form a single body," (CCC 1331). Those who are unable to attend Mass or to receive the Sacrament are encouraged to unite themselves to Christ in prayer through what is known as a Spiritual communion. As Pope St. John Paull II explained in his encyclical Ecclesia de Eucharistia (no.34), when it is not possible to receive communion it is beneficial to cultivate in your heart a constant desire for the Sacrament. This prayer from St. Alphonsus of Liguori can help you to make this act of spiritual communion: 

Eucharistww

My Jesus 
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart. 
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. 
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen  

Divine Mercy e1428606890505

1. Make the Sign of the Crosschapletbeads

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

2. Optional Opening Prayers

You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us. 
(Repeat three times) 
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You!

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

6. The Eternal Father

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

7. On the 10 Small Beads of Each Decade

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

8. Repeat for the remaining decades

Saying the "Eternal Father" (6) on the "Our Father" bead and then 10 "For the sake of His sorrowful Passion" (7) on the following "Hail Mary" beads.

9. Conclude with Holy God (Repeat three times)

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

10. Optional Closing Prayer

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
