We ask all people of the Diocese and beyond to join with us as we celebrate our co-Patrosn the Martys of Papua New Guinea.

All powerful and ever living God,
turn our weakness into strength.
As you gave your Martyrs of Papua New Guinea the courage to suffer death for Christ,
give us the courage
to live in faithful witness to you.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
your Son who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
