Prayer Corner

Prayer is an integral part of our faith life.   It is our way of talking to God and telling him about our day as well as asking for any help we may need.  We can pray ourselves in front of the Blessed Sacrament at Adoration, or we can request others to pray for us at Mass with Mass Intentions or with a Prayer Chain.  

Prayer is powerful and helps us to get closer to God.

Mass Intentions

  • Mass Intentions can be requested up to 3 months in advance of the Mass you would like to request (see below for dates).  A limit of six intentions per year at St. Bonaventure, unlimited intents to retired priests.  To request a mass intention, contact the parish office at info@stbonaventureparish.ca or call 403-278-7556.

Adoration

  • All are welcome to attend Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the church on Mondays from 12 noon to 6 pm.  Please respect all COVID guidelines when attending.  

Pope's Intentions 

We invite you to pray for the countries devastated by the pandemic. Pray especially for those with the Coronavirus, those who care for them, and those who are suffering from anxiety during this stressful time.

  •  Prayer intentions:

    • For the troubled areas of our world, especially for our brothers and sisters in India and Brazil who are experiencing loss, transition or change. May God strengthen all who have been discouraged or victimized by this pandemic, and all who grieve the loss of a loved one, we pray to the Lord. 

      For world leaders, that God may give them the grace to work together during this pandemic to promote justice and special care toward the poor, sick and vulnerable, we pray to the Lord.

      For those most susceptible to the Coronavirus, that God will protect them from illness and surround them with the peace of knowing that they are loved and cared for beyond measure, we pray to the Lord. 

      For all of us yearning for the Sacrament of the Eucharist during this time, that God may bless our hunger with an ever increasing devotion and love of Christ that compels us to share that love with others, we pray to the Lord

      For all parishes in our Diocese and throughout the world, that God may bless their creative efforts in safely reaching out and providing for the spiritual and material needs of people, we pray to the Lord. 

      For all of us, that God will give us the grace to know his presence in our everyday lives, and to know him as our constant companion in times of loneliness, our gladness in times of suffering, and our sure hope in times of uncertainty, we pray to the Lord.
