Prayers at Mass

I Confess (Penitential Act):

I confess to Almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned, In my thoughts and In my words, In what I have done And in what I have failed to do,

Through my fault, through my fault, Through my most grievous fault;

Therefore I ask Blessed Mary ever-Virgin, All the Angels and Saints and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord, our God.


Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will.

We praise you, we bless You, We adore you, we glorify You, We give you thanks for Your great glory.

Lord God, heavenly King, O God, Almighty Father. Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son.

Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

You take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer. You are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For you alone are Holy One, You alone are the Lord.

You alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

Apostles’ Creed:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, / Creator of Heaven and earth, / and in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord, / (all bow till the words 'Virgin Mary’) who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, / born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate, / was crucified, died and was buried;

He descended into hell; / on the third day He rose again from the dead; / He ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand / of God the Father Almighty; / From there He will come to judge the living and the dead. /

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, / the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, / the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Nicene creed:

I believe in One God, / the Father Almighty, / maker of heaven and earth, / of all things visible and invisible. /

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, / born of the Father before all ages. / God from God, Light from Light, / true God from true God,/ begotten, not made, / consubstantial with the Father; / through him all things were made. /

For us men and for our salvation / He came down from heaven, (all bow) / AND BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, / WAS INCARNATE OF THE VIRGIN MARY, / AND BECAME MAN. /

For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate, / He suffered death and was buried / and rose again on the third day / in accordance with the Scriptures; / He ascended into heaven / and is seated at the right hand of the Father. / He will come again in glory / to judge the living and the dead / and His Kingdom will have no end. /

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, / who proceeds from the Father and the Son, / who with the Father and the Son / is adored and glorified, / who has spoken through the prophets. /

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. / I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins / and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead / and the life of the world to come. Amen.


Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts, Heaven and earth are full of your glory, Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest.

Mystery of Faith:

We proclaim your death, O Lord, and profess your Resurrection until you come again.


When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup, we proclaim your Death, O Lord, until you come again.


Save us, Saviour of the world for by your Cross and Resurrection You have set us free.
