Collect of St Mark

Almighty God who has instructed your Holy Church with the heavenly doctrine of your Evangelist St Mark. Give us grace, that, not being like children carried away with every blast of vain doctrine, we may be established in the truth of your holy Gospel, through Jesus Christ our Lord


Collects for the Season of Christmas

Christmas Eve
Almighty God, you make us glad with the yearly remembrance of the birth of your son Jesus Christ. Grant that, as we joyfully receive him as our redeemer, we may with sure confidence behold him when he shall come to be our judge: who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

The Nativity of the Lord
Almighty God, who hast given thy only-begotten Son to take our nature upon him, and as at this time to be born of a pure virgin; Grant that we being regenerate, and made thy children by adoption and grace, may daily be renewed by thy Holy Spirit; through the same our Lord Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit, ever one God, world without end.

The Epiphany – 6th January
O God, who by the leading of a star manifested your only Son to the peoples of the earth: Mercifully grant that we, who know you now by faith, may at last behold your glory face to face; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
