Catholic Prayers to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has requested that every parish celebrate a Mass with prayers to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II this Sunday 3 June - the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity.

During this Mass, the first reading will be replaced by 1 Kings 3:11–14 and the prayer for the Queen will be said after the post Communion prayer and before the final Blessing.

Prayer for the Queen
V. O Lord, save Elizabeth, our Queen.
R. And hear us on the day we call upon you.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come before you.
V. The Lord be with you.
R. and with your spirit.

Almighty God, we pray,
that your servant Elizabeth, our Queen,
who, by your providence has received the governance of this realm,
may continue to grow in every virtue,
that, imbued with your heavenly grace,
she may be preserved from all that is harmful and evil
and, being blessed with your favour
may, with her consort and the royal family,
come at last into your presence,
through Christ who is the way, the truth and the life
and who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
