First day of Dementia Prayer Week 12th March
Today a group of small people for they are toddlers, are having a Yellow Day, with lots of activities. The new Dementia family Ministry prayer card will be presented to the adults.
This event has become a tradition for the Toddler Group of Our Lady of the Angels Parish Nuneaton. They led the way with the very first prayer box for the parish to place prayer intentions.
Years later, those first toddlers now in school are taking part in different ways through school liturgy and in class. Several of the children know first hand about dementia as their grandparents lives are affected by it. As a charity we were delighted to have worked with the school http://olstjacademy.co.uk/ in developing a Lesson Plan which has been piloted and used in classes with great results.
Our thanks to the teachers, leaders, parents and grandparents for being so generous with their time, prayer and donating to our work.
They and everyone will be remembered by Bishop David McGough when he offer his private mass on Thursday 14th March 2019.
The Dementia family Ministry prayer card includes a prayer by Archbishop Bernard Longley and Bishop David McGough which is beautifully produced and available from
Redemptorist Publications https://www.rpbooks.co.uk/dementia-prayer-card-25-pack
This all year round prayer card adds to our resources and will help us greatly every day, in our mission of following the mission of Christ himself in doing his Fathers will.
