The 90th Birthday of
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
The Bishops’ Conference establishes that, at all Sunday Masses on 11–12 June 2016, each parish prays for Her Majesty the Queen to mark her 90th birthday by including such an intention in the Bidding Prayers and by reciting at the end of Mass (after the Prayer after Communion and before the Final Blessing) the Prayer for the Queen.
Parishes may also wish to sing the chant Domine, salvum fac and/or the National Anthem.
The Prayer for the Queen, a model intercession and the chant Domine, salvum fac can be downloaded below:
The Servant Queen and the King she serves
The Bishops' Conference also recommends to parishes the booklet The Servant Queen and the King she serves for circulation and use.
This unique book published by Bible Society, HOPE and LICC uses the Queen’s own words to draw out the central role of her trust in Jesus Christ.
