In response to reaching the terrible milestone of 100,000 deaths from COVID-19, the Archbishops invite all to call on God in Prayer. Starting on 1 February we invite you to set aside time every evening to pray, particularly at 6pm each day. More than ever, this is a time when we need to love each other. Prayer is an expression of love.
We start our preparation with this prayer:
We lift to God those we hold in our hearts -
praying for their health, their well-being and their sense of hope.
We pray that even when loved ones can not physically be together they would not feel apart.
We ask for God's help in our communicating, our connecting and our caring.
