Universal Prayer for Sunday and weekday Masses
Prayers of the faithful
These prayers are exactly what their name suggests – prayers of the gathered faithful. In praying this prayer, the faithful are carrying out their role of praying for the entire world as well as for the needs of the local community. No two congregations will have exactly the same prayers, since their perception of the world's needs and of the local community will vary. Therefore they are written anew for each Sunday and weekly celebrations.

There are two sets of the Universal Prayer for that day.
One being used in the Cathedral itself which other parishes in the Archdiocese of Adelaide might like to use.
Around Australia you might like to use the alternate petitions or edit and blend them with the ones specifically for the 60th anniversary.
