Members in the London Region were also asked to stipend Michaelmas Masses at their local parishes for the intention of the Guild and Catholics in Policing. The nature of the Mass is listed.

This is the home of the Guild in London. The Guild Banner (dedicated to St. Michael upon its installation earlier this year) is normally displayed in the Church. The Mass is already booked for other stipend intentions. It remains a fitting location for Mass and private prayer (at Mass or otherwise) for policing on Michaelmas (including with the Consecrated Banner); and to meet any other Guild members who may attend.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
