An Hour of Prayer and Praise
|Join Bishop Philip and the cathedral clergy each Thursday at 7.30 pm on live-stream for an Hour of Prayer and Praise called “Verso L’Alto: Reach for the Heights”. Bishop Philip writes ‘During lockdown and serious situation we continue to face because of the COVID pandemic, as Christians our key task must be to pray for a speedy end to the crisis. We pray for the sick and for heroes, and for the safety of all. So, on Thursday nights over these weeks of lockdown, from 7.30 til 8.30, I’d like to invite you online to join me and the Cathedral clergy for an Hour of Prayer and Praise for these intentions. We need from God a word of assurance, a message of hope, a sign of love. We need a Saviour. We need Christ the Lord and a real friendship with Him. You can join us this Thursday by the Cathedral live-stream to pray for all our intentions, for our safety, for our Diocese, for the sick and for resolution of the crisis. ’|

This Lent, CAFOD invites you to join the Big Walk for Water CAFODS virtual event on Saturday 20th February . We are asking everyone to walk in solidarity with those who have to walk to collect water each day like Abdella from Ethiopia.
