A PRAYER FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY THE MASS SHOOTING IN UVALDE,TEXAS
Lord God, we pray for all those who have been devastated by the shooting of innocent children and teachers in Uvalde, Texas.  We pray for the parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, relatives and friends of the little angles who so tragically died last Tuesday.  In praying for them, we pray also for the families of the two teachers who also died.  We hold in our thoughts the families whose lives have forever been changed by unimaginable grief.  Though they are lost in grief, bring them comfort, surround them in your loving embrace and help to bring healing. Amen

HOSPITAL VISITS
The Rector continues to make contact with parishioners who have been admitted to hospital, wherever possible. Due to rising Covid numbers physical access to hospitals may be curtailed for Chaplains.  Please inform the Parish Office if you or another parishioner or family member is admitted to hospital. We are also happy to include those who so wish in our Parish Prayer List. In the event of a pastoral concern or emergency, the clergy are available on the Parish emergency phone (083 477 1673).
