At the beatification of Blessed Carlo Acutis on Saturday it was announced that his feast day shall be on October 12th, the day he died and was born into Eternal Life. As our new parish patron this means that from now on October 12th will be our parish Feast Day. This means that our new parish will be blessed by the prayers of a great panoply of Saints! SS Peter & Paul Apostles, St Michael the Archangel, St Bernadette, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Blessed John Sugar, Martyr, and now Blessed Carlo Acutis, the first millennial to be beatified. As we have not received the new official Mass prayers for the feast, we will be using the "Common of Men Saints for one Saint" from the Lectionary and the Liturgy of the Hours.

Prayer in Thanksgiving for the Beatification of the Blessed Carlo Acutis
Oh Father, we give you thanks for the ardent testimony of Blessed Carlo Acutis,
who made the Eucharist the core of his life
and the strength of his daily commitments
so that everybody may love You above all else.
Confirm my faith, nurture my hope, strengthen my charity,
in the image of young Carlo
who, growing in these virtues, now lives with You.
Grant me the grace that I need …
I trust in You, Father,
and your Beloved Son Jesus,
in the Virgin Mary, our Dearest Mother,
and in the intervention of
Blessed Carlo Acutis.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
