Prayers for the Sick before the Blessed Sacrament
Tuesdays 9.30 am
This prayer service starts and ends with a hymn, and includes prayer for those suffering from physical or mental illness, especially cancer. There is a book in which those who have sick family or friends can write down the names: the intentions in this book are especially remembered during the prayers, as are the intentions in our Parish Prayer Intention Book.
We ask the intercession of St Michael of the Saints, the patron saint of cancer patients (picture below).
After the service we have a chatty tea/coffee session and give a small donation which goes to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
