Gather and Pray services for May are listed below and we thank each of them for their ongoing commitment.
18th May 2018 Holy Hour by Candlelight at St Augustine's Catholic Church Solihull 6.15pm. Included in the holy hour will be the charitable work of the Pastoral Care Project, and the people, parishes, and schools who support us. Thank you to everyone for your generosity.
Mass 19th May, will be offered by Fr Stephen Beale, SDP in Cardianl Heenan House, Upholland; united in prayer with the residents, staff and relatives and all who are connected to the charitable work of the Pastoral Care Project.
20th May Sunday Afternoon Service 3.00pm in Abbey Park Care Home Coventry, led by the chaplain, Rev Pauline Warner, and joined by residents and staff.
This month of May offers us all a wonderful opportunity to pray with the two great feasts: the Ascension and Pentecost. Ascension gifts us with the Prayer of Waiting - waiting for the Advocate, and Pentecost gift us with the Advocate - the Holy Spirit, a gift which Jesus promised he would send to teach us about The Father's Love (c) and to teach us to pray.
My prayer is, that more churches, care homes and schools will be prompted by the Holy Spirit to link a regular service like the examples above, or take this invitation to initiate one and unite your prayers for the poorest of the poor - the person who has dementia. Thank You and I look forward to hearing from you. Frances
