Spread the Word
The Theme for this year's annual national week is 'The Father's Love' and in the words of Bishop David McGough, "During this week we remember especially the often forgotten pain of those suffering with dementia, and those who care for them." Bishop David's new prayer - Loving Father can be purchased from our online shop.
