Lord, may your name be blessed
in the seasons of my life.
In the springtide of my hopes,
sow a seed that never dies.
May the summer of my labours be
as the harvest of your love.
The winter of my days the
sharing of your cross.
With, and in you, may we become that single grain,
falling to the ground and rising to eternal life.
Thank you to Bishop David McGough for this Lent/Easter Prayer
The Pastoral Care Project sadly, has to restrict the charity work in the office until we receive further instructions regarding the Caronavirus.
During this time we continue to join in prayer with everyone in the prayer that Jesus taught us all to say: Our Father....
The Video on the Our Father may offer you encouragement, and hope, along with all of the videos on the link.
Thank you to everyone for joining in this important week, reminding us that each individual who has dementia may have a need to experience the peace and presence of God.
This can be understood more clearly in the Dementia - New Creation video talk by the late Monsignor Paul Watson, Birmingham.
On the dedicated resource page there is a variety of resources, including one for each day
