This is a street artists view of the New 'state of the art' St Vincent's Mission Hub at Solly Street. It houses the University Chaplaincy and is also used as a Diocesan outreach Centre for youth evangelisation. It even boasts of a chic Italian Cafe serving an array of coffees and tasty light bites. It originally was the Victorian boys school which was opened in the 1860's shortly after the Vincentian Order arrived in the city to establish the parish. Mass is once more being said in it's original habitat of Solly Street after a lapse of twenty-four years. Long may it remain that way. The place is utterly transformed. Covid, of course has restricted activities at the venue but gradually things are being normalised. Fr Paddy

A prayer for Afghanistan
We hold in your presence the people of Afghanistan.
Be a shelter for those who have been displaced.
Be a comforter for those who are mourning.
Be the peace for those who are afraid,
Be near to those who are hungry.
Be healing for those who are sick.
Be the strength of those working to bring hope.
Open our eyes and hearts, so we may stand in solidarity, and reach out in love to our brothers and sisters. May they know they are not forgotten and that we hold them in our hearts whilst they search for the path to peace?
Loving and generous Father, it is You who call us by name and ask us to follow you. In particular, you call some to serve You as ministers in your Church. Bless our diocese of Hallam by raising up faith-filled and dedicated priests, deacons and religious. Bless our families and choose from our homes those who are needed for Your Mission.
Blessed John Anne: Pray for us.
Blessed Robert Ludlum: Pray for us.
Blessed Nicholas Garlick: Pray for us.
Blessed William Richardson; Pray for us.
Mary, Mother of Perpetual Help: Pray for us.
PRAYER FOR UKRAINE
Loving God, We pray for the people of Ukraine for all those suffering or afraid, that you will be close to them and protect them. We pray for world leaders, for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices. We pray for the world that in this moment of crisis, we may reach out in solidarity to our brothers and sisters in need. May we walk in your ways so that peace and justice become a reality for the people of Ukraine and for all the world? Amen.
Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary that never was it known, that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence I fly unto Thee, O Virgin of Virgins my mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O mother of the Word incarnate do not reject my petition but graciously hear it and grant it. Amen. (Saint Bernard)
For the happy repose of HM The Queen
Almighty God, You are the author and sustainer of all human life;
grant that your servant, Elizabeth our Queen,
to whom you granted a long and happy reign
as Monarch of these lands
may be forgiven her sins and rewarded with that eternal life
promised to all those born again
in the water of baptism and power of your Spirit.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit
God, for ever and ever.
Eternal rest, grant to her O Lord,
and let Perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace.
