St John the Evangelist Angelus Prayer

Everyday, at midday and 6.00pm, the wonderful sound of the Angelus Bell sounds at St. John’s. If you can, please take a few moments’ break from whatever you are doing to join with the parish community and say the Angelus Prayer. In this way, we will come together in unified prayer, even if we cannot be together in the church.

The Angelus Prayer
V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary,
R. And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary, etc...
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to thy Word.
Hail Mary, etc...
V. And the Word was made flesh,
R. And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary, etc...
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech thee, O Lord,
thy grace into our hearts;
that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ thy Son,
was made known by the message of an angel,
may by His Passion and Cross
be brought to the glory of His Resurrection.
Through the same Christ, our Lord.
