Diocesan Day of Prayer

Diocesan Day of Prayer for the sick and their families, NHS front-line, social care workers and other key workers

On Thursday 14 May 2020 we hosted a Diocesan Day of Prayer for the sick and their families, NHS front-line, social care workers and other key workers.

The day was streamed online and began with Divine Office from St. Mary’s Cathedral, and ended with Bishop Byrne celebrating Mass for the sick and their families, and for NHS front–line, social care and key workers.

…as prayer is a universal value, …next May 14 believers of all religions unite spiritually in a Day of Prayer and Fasting and Works of Charity, to implore God to help humanity overcome the coronavirus pandemic. Remember: May 14, all believers together, believers of different traditions, to pray, fast, and do works of charity.

Pope Francis, 3 May, 2020.
