St Gabriel's Parish Prayer
God our Father,
in a wonderful way you guide the work of all your creatures.
May St Gabriel, the archangel,
whom you chose to announce
the mystery of the Incarnation
to the Blessed Virgin Mary,
keep us free from harm
and help us to grow strong in faith.
Under his watchful care
may we advance along the way of salvation,
and generously use our talents, gifts, and vision,
in the service of our parish,
and to the honour and glory of your name.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
St Stephen's Prayer
under the reign of St Stephen as king,
the Church in his country increased in numbers and strength.
Grant that he may continue to defend your Church
from his place in heaven,
and watch over this Parish of Reservoir East
placed under his patronage.
