All associated with the Play are conscious of their missionary role in portraying the story of Christ's love.

One day is set aside for Reflection each year.
Heavenly Father, by your grace we gather to humby portray the Passion, Death and Resurrection of your Son, Jesus Christ.

Grant us the grace to bear our meagre crosses of frustration, disappointment and petty dislikes in a true Christian spirit and to work together in harmony for the good of the play.

In keeping with our motto 'Unity around the Cross' we pray for a deepening of the ecumenical spirit now evident among other Christian brethren with whom we come in contact, particularly when we travel.

In all things, your will, not ours, be done.

We now pray the words Our Saviour taught us:

Our Father who art in Heaven ... For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever.

The Iona Passion Play Prayer
Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Father! In your hands I place my spirit!" He said this and died. Lk 23:46
The purpose of The Iona Passion Play has always been to bring together people from various Christian persuasions in an ecumenical gesture aimed at bringing before the minds of a community the true meaning of Easter.
