Gather and pray has been growing for over two years, supporting all who are connected to the charitable work of the Pastoral Care Project. Sometimes, we are asked what is involved in gather and pray? Details of public events can be found towards the bottom of the page.
It comes to my mind at this moment, a similar question was asked by the disciples, they said to Jesus, "teach us to pray?"
Did you know we are planning to launch two videos? The Our Father and Dementia-New Creation.
These videos are talks given at the charities AGM in 2016 by the late Monsignor Paul Watson, STL MA(Ed) who served in the Archdiocese of Birmingham - mainly as Director at Meryvale Institute and then as parish priest in Atherstone until 16.10. 2018 - May he rest in Peace.
Father Paul as he was known to many, was as a gentle evangelist, the Word of God flowing so graciously, as the Holy Spirit touched the hearts and minds those listening.
The talks were purposely prepared for us to evangelize, enriching the lives of many, including the person who has dementia and those who care for and minister to them.
With your help we could launch them soon, would you consider making a donation, maybe in memory of someone? We would be so grateful - thank you.
There are many ways to donate: totalgiving link or or the contact page, where you will find the address to write for my attention. Frances Molloy, Project Manager. Cheques payable to Pastoral Care Project or by BACS telephone the office or message me via @adementiaaprayer
