O Mary, our mother, you know the sufferings and hopes of the Church and the world:
come to the aid of your children in the daily trials which life brings to each one,
and grant that, thanks to the efforts of all, the darkness will not prevail over the light. Amen

AT MASS WE STAND AND SIT AND KNEEL 
We are introducing some small changes in when we sit and stand at Mass to bring our liturgy into line with the missal.  We hope that a common practice, which is being used in most parishes throughout the country, will help people feel even more welcome and at home in whatever Church they participate in the celebration of the Eucharist.  We will introduce this change during Lent.
