Prayers & Support For the Faithful – Suicide Awareness Month

We pray that families and friends experiencing the loss of a loved one by suicide may find healing and comfort, we pray to the Lord.

We pray that those living with a mental illness, depression and suicidal thoughts may find the help and support that they need, we pray to the Lord.

Thankful for God’s eternal mercy, we pray for the repose of the souls of those who have died by suicide, we pray to the Lord. 

We pray that our parish may be a place of hope and refuge for persons experiencing suicidal thoughts.

“The future is so much in the hands of God, I find it much more easy to accept today because yesterday has gone and tomorrow has not come, and I have only today.”

Sr. Teresa of Calcutta
