Prayer for Ukraine

Almighty and Great God, accept our gratitude for your boundless mercy towards us.
Hear the supplication of our afflicted hearts for the land and people of Ukraine,
as they confront foreign aggression and invasion.

Open the eyes of those who have been overtaken by a spirit of deception and violence,
that they be horrified by their works.
Grant victory over the powers of evil that have arisen,
and bless Ukraine with your gifts of liberty, peace, tranquillity and good fortune.

We implore you, O Merciful God, look with grace upon those who courageously defend their land.
Remember the mothers and fathers, the innocent children, widows and orphans,
the disabled and helpless, those seeking shelter and refuge,
who reach out to you and to their fellow human beings looking for mercy and compassion.

Bless the hearts of those who have already shown great generosity and solidarity,
and those who prepare to receive their Ukrainian brothers and sisters in Ukraine’s greatest time of need.
Bring us together as your children, your creation, and instill in us your strength, wisdom and understanding.

May you be praised and glorified, now and forever, and to the ages of ages.

How you can help

Please give a donation & remember those affected in your prayers.
The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church together with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the UK and other Ukrainian organisations have formed a special emergency appeal, details below.

For the Government’s “Homes for Ukraine” scheme visit: https://homesforukraine.campaign.gov.uk/  and the grassroots website: https://www.sanctuaryfoundation.org.uk/   The scheme is for those who know Ukrainians; the potential host names a refugee individual, couple or family that they are willing to accommodate. After that the Government will help “match” refugees with those who are offering homes.

Watching Mass Online

All weekday masses are live streamed plus the 11.00am Mass on Sundays. Here is the YouTube link for all live streamings. The stream goes live 10 minutes beforehand. Here is the Order of Mass. Please say the Act of Spiritual Communion after the priest has received Holy Communion.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You Are truly 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 being already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Mass Offerings

All intentions will be said by Fr David either in public or private celebration of Mass. If you would like to offer a Mass please contact the Parish Office.


If you are using the Ordinariate Rite please see this mass card.

Communion of the Sick

The Blessed Sacrament can be taken to the sick and housebound by arrangement. Please contact us.
