Prayer to Saint James

Almighty ever-living God,

Who consecrated the first fruits of your Apostles

by the blood of Saint James,

grant, we pray,

that your Church may be strengthened by his confession of faith

and constantly sustained by his protection.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

One God, for ever and ever.

Feast day of St James, patron of our parish,  is Saturday 25th July 2020
