Daily Prayers

Each day of the week (apart from a Monday), Fr Jason is in Church to pray Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer at 8.30am and 5.30pm respectively.  These are short services (approximately fifteen minutes) of reciting the psalms, a scripture reading and prayers - including daily prayers for the parish and its residents.  This is a good way to start and end each day and all are welcome to join him in Church at those times or by praying at home using the Gospel Reading and the Prayer Intentions on the Weekly Bulletin.
