Since the last meeting our Vincentians undertook a total of 16 visits to people in the local community and care homes, providing support and companionship to the housebound and visiting the sick, helping with shopping and problems.
Opening prayers for our meeting included a reading from the Advent Walk With Me booklet “The promise of love”. Members then discussed visits, correspondence and the plans for wrapping and delivering the Christmas parcels.
Mary Queen of Peace, we pray for the Christian communities in Mosul and in other parts of the Middle East, where they have lived with their fellow citizens from the very beginning of Christianity.
Through your intercession bring light out of this present darkness and hope from despair so that guided by the Holy Spirit, all God’s children may find a new way forward together based love.
If anyone would like to join us as a visiting member or to support us in any other way they would be most welcome. For further information, contact Our Lady of Grace presbytery on 0161-773 2324.
