May Easter wrap its loveliness about your heart,
and may the full significance of the Resurrection
dawnon you as bright and beautiful
as the eternal spring…
and whenever dark hours come,
may the remembrance of the Resurrection
shine through the darkness
and light your way with faith
and lift the clouds from your heart
as the stone was lifted from the tomb.

A PRAYER FOR UKRAINE
Mary, Our Lady of Kiev, Mother of God,
we ask you to intercede for the people of Ukraine,
for their government,
and all who suffer as a result of war
Be with them as you stood beside your Son,
suffering on the Cross at Calvary.
Give them strength and courage through faith, hope and justice.
May we, in our turn,
support them to prayer and generosity
that human lives may be saved,
that the injured may be healed,
that the dead may rest in peace,
that there will be peace after war.
Amen.

HOLY COMMUNION FOR THE SICK AND HOUSEBOUND

Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.” If you or anyone you know is ill, either in hospital or at home, and would like to receive the Church’s ministry in anointing and Holy Communion, please let Fr Nigel know and he will come and visit you/your family and friends
