PETITION FOR PRAYERS

Marc Andre Campbell or, when necessary, an alternate Priest, will preside. Should you wish to have a special intention included in the monthly Mass, please contact us in complete confidence and we will ensure that the presiding Priest receives the intention.
Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.
For Members of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem
Lord Jesus, who has deigned to call me to the Ranks of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, I humbly supplicate Thee, by the intercession of the most Blessed Virgin Mary, of Saint Joseph, Saint Peter, Saint Paul and all the Saints, to help me to remain faithful to the traditions of our Order, in practising and defending the Catholic, Apostolic and Roman Religion against impiety and in exercising charity to my neighbour and above all to the poor and the sick in the Holy Land and in supporting by prayer and sacrifice the maintenance of the Holy places and the work of His Beatitude the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem. Give me the strength to be able to execute these desires with a truly Christian spirit, for the Glory of God, the peace of the world and the good for the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that any one who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to you,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;
to you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful;
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
(Note: According to Tradition, the Memorare was given to the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre by Saint Bernard during the Second Crusade)

The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem has arranged with the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem to have Masses offered in a church or special shrine in the Holy Land where our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, was born, preached, died, rose from the dead and redeemed mankind.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass may be offered for you or your loved ones for many different occasions or situations in addition to in memory of a deceased. It is a wonderful way to celebrate a wedding, birth, baptism, first communion, confirmation, birthday, anniversary, graduation. It can be used to send a message of support, hope, strength, courage and love to a family member or friend going through a difficult time or illness.
Mass cards can be used any time as a way to ask for God’s blessing.
