Dear Friends

I ask you to join with us as often as you can – even though we are separated from one another physically, let us be united in Christ through our common prayer. Of course it goes without saying that you may send me requests for prayers by email or text, and 07758807434.

Do feel free to be in touch if I can help you at a distance in any way.
We hope and pray for a speedy resolution to the present difficult situation, for healing of those who are sick, for strength and protection of those who care for them in hospital or at home, and that the virus which is afflicting our world will soon be brought under control.
Please be assured of my prayers for you all – May God’s blessing be upon each and everyone of you!

With love in Christ,

Fr Gregory
