Fr Damian and David Wilde have been encouraged by a good number of folk that have shown a keen interest in setting up a pastoral prayer group, a group that focuses on PRAYER for the sick, the needy and the dying and responding with a Christian PRESENCE in the community. We have chose the name ‘Friends of St Francis’ for it has been his example that inspired the first thoughts about such a group. The new group will take a lead in praying for the needs of our local community and church family as well as the great needs of our world today. Also important will be practical responses to pastoral situations, this is going to be key to the groups two-fold work. Please keep this group, Fr Damian and David in your prayers as together they discern the Lord’s will for this imporatnt work. If anyone would like to explore joining this group please call Fr Damian on 01524 413144 or see him or David in church.
