Our Lady of Grace Conference
Meeting of Thursday 06/06/2014
Since our last meeting on 22/05/2014 our Vincentians have undertaken a total of 12 visits to people in the local community and in hospital, helping with shopping, supporting people to get to the post office and befriending those who are sick or housebound.
Members also attended the District Council meeting at St James the Less, Rawtenstall, which commenced with Benediction and the Rosary in the church led by Cannon Lupton. The meeting then took place with the hosts being very welcoming and providing a comfortable venue and good range of refreshments.
Your prayers are asked for all who have been bereaved. Oh Mary, Mother of Christ. You knew the sadness of mourning those your heart loved most, Jesus your son and Joseph your spouse. Pray for all who have been bereaved. Ask God to send the Holy Spirit to bring them peace lest bitterness, false guilt, or regret take root in their hearts.
