Christian and Muslim Women’s Prayers for Peace

St Mary’s Chapel (Jesmond Shrine) 16th May, 2015

 The annual Diocesan Christian/Muslim Women`s event to pray for peace took place at the ruined chapel to Our Lady, Jesmond on Saturday 16th May.

A candle was lit in joint recognition of the united need to pray for peace.
There were readings and hymns from the New Testament and the Qu`ran. The list of current wars was read out and pondered. Christine Wickens invited anyone to pray  in the bidding prayers and several people offered their own bidding prayers.
The event finished with the sign of peace and hugs and refreshments at Holy Name Parish Centre. About 30 women attended in a warm-hearted and relaxed atmosphere.
