Mother of Good Counsel
The Augustinians established the church in Innisfail and hence their patron, Our Mother of Good Counsel, has become our patron. The feast of Our Mother of Good Counsel is celebrated on April 26th.
A Prayer for Guidance
O Mary, Mother of Good Counsel,
you are the first and most faithful of the disciples of Jesus.
Our Father chose you to present his Son to the world;
Guide me on the path that leads to Him.
In this passing world our hearts are fearful and judgements uncertain.
I come to you for guidance that I may know Jesus,
and for confidence that I may put all my trust in him.
Instruct me in the way of generous giving that I may share his and your love for all.
O Mary, the dwelling place of God’s wisdom,
guide me in all I do and set my footsteps on the way of peace.
Mother of Good Counsel, pray for me and be my guide.
