A day of prayer for healing...

A day of prayer for healing

 

On Sunday 18 October, St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, along with all English cathedrals, will mark a special day of prayer.

 

There will be a particular focus at the 11.00 am Eucharist, when the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, the Right Reverend Martin Seeley, will preach. During the services, prayers will be offered for the healing of the nation as the pandemic continues to impact on all our lives. The service will also include prayers for those oppressed by modern slavery, as 18 October also marks Anti-Slavery Day.

 

A special candle will be lit at each service in the cathedral to remember all those working in the provision of healthcare and for all those affected by COVID-19.

 

A prayer has been released by the Association of English Cathedrals as the whole nation faces renewed restrictions in the fight against the spread of coronavirus and in order to help save lives and protect the NHS.

 

The Very Reverend Joe Hawes, Dean of St Edmundsbury, comments: “Prayer is a vital part of our ministry. This Sunday is the Feast of St Luke, the patron saint of medicine and healing, so we pray especially for those who continue to support us all through their tireless work for the NHS and through social care provision.”

 

Prayers can be left on the Cathedral's virtual prayer wall which will be prayed each day by the Cathedral clergy. Cathedral services are livestreamed via the Cathedral’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/stedscathedral
