St Gregory sent
St Augustine,
patron of our diocese,
to bring the Gospel message to this country


God our Loving Father,
pour out on us afresh
the gifts of your Holy Spirit.
Open our ears to hear your Word,
open our eyes to see your presence,
open our minds to understand your Wisdom
and open our hearts to be more available
for your mission
so that strengthened by your grace
we can truly be a sign and instrument
of your presence in our world today.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
