INTERCESSORY PRAYER GROUP
The group of Intercessors meet every Thursday at 17:00 in the church or the counselling room in the parish centre. We pray for the parish, our leaders, parishioners, the sick and bereaved and for special concerns. We also welcome anyone who needs to pop in for prayer. We ask you to send prayer requests to Terry or Monique or Heatherlynn (ask the parish office for their contact details). Your requests go straight onto a prayer chain and we can have 10 people praying instantly. We take this very seriously, keep strict confidentiality and we have had wonderful testimonies.
CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER GROUP
The Contemplative Prayer Group gathers every Sunday evening at 7pm for Centering prayer and Lectio divina. Our meetings usually run about an hour with time for reflection on the evening’s chosen scripture. Scripture is chosen from the Sunday's set lectionary readings, adding depth to what has already been said at the morning services. The group’s attendance ranges from six to sixteen and is comprised of women and men, couples and singles. All the attendees are from the congregation of St. Francis of Assisi and represent both the 07h30 and 09h30 Masses.
