A Week of Guided Prayer

The Week of Guided Prayer which was held in 2017 was a great success and the ones who participated were very happy to have had the opportunity.

So that we can continue this tradition, a different format has been devised.

The Weeks will be guided but for about 5 people at a time. The opportunity for meeting the Director will be the same….about 45 minutes daily.

Doing the Week this way means that there will be no need for finding accommodation for the Directors, having several cooks involved and finding places suitable for Direction.

There will be a poster in the Porch and, if you wish to participate, you may sign up.

If you want privacy, simply use your phone number.

Any questions? Call 07495376401 Celia Bermingham
