SAINT BARNABAS DUNWOODY GEORGIA: Holy Communion will be celebrated on Thursday 15th August at 7pm for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We are planning a fun informal social gathering in Harvey Hall after Mass, so please bring along your favourite foods and drinks and join us for the celebration!
O God, who this day didst take to thyself blessed Mary, the ever-Virgin Mother of thine only-begotten Son: grant that we who celebrate her glory may be aided by her prayers, and may come to share her heavenly and eternal joys. Through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
