Through The Cat’s Meow we can gather in the names of those who are suffering in body, mind or spirit at this time and for whom you have a special concern and we can each undertake to lift them up in prayer before God.
For those who are living in fear for whatever reason;
For patients in hospitals and residents of long-term care facilities, and their families;
For the lonely and forgotten in this time of social isolation;
For those who are living on the margins of society;
For those whose burden is too deep for words.
For the souls of all the departed and for those who mourn.
Let us have names by next Friday and they will be included in the next issue.
Michaelmas Jacob’s Ladder will come out at the end of the month Please submit stories, reports and family news to email@example.com or the church office. All contributions welcome.
The office is open on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings. 9:30 to noon.
These are available on the back shelf as follows:
