Prayer of the Week.
Let us pause and remember our brothers and sisters who are sick and homebound.
Almighty Father in heaven,
we pray for the members of our parish community who are unable to be with us because of illness or confinement.
Support them with your protection and give them strength and healing.
To the ministers who bring Communion to the sick today:
May the Lord bless you and keep you safe as you carry with you Christ, the Living Bread.
Along with the Eucharistic food, take to our absent brothers and sisters our prayers and our love.
Go in peace with the Body of Christ.
