Rise! Take your mat and Walk

Friday 6th March is World Day of Prayer

World Day of Prayer is an international, inter-church organisation which helps us to hear the thoughts of women from all parts of the World: their hopes, concerns and prayers. The Day of Prayer is celebrated in over 120 countries. It begins in Samoa and prayer in native language travels throughout the World through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas before finishing in American Samoa some thirty eight hours later.

Each year, the service is written by a different country. This year, it has been prepared by the Christian Women of Zimbabwe who call us to: “Rise! Take your mat and walk.”

We are encouraged to reflect on the difficulties and unrest that have plagued their country over many years. They share the challenges, they have met and the hopes they have for the future and invite us to support them as they continue their often turbulent journey towards full reconciliation.

As we hear their stories the challenges for them and for us is that is that we will constantly seek love, peace and reconciliation.

The World Day of Prayer service will be held at:

St. Joseph’s Church on Friday 6th March

Starting with the Service at 1:30pm

Followed by refreshments at 2:30pm

All are welcome to attend: Men, Women and Children.

We thank the Women of Zimbabwe for this service and pray that our response will be positive as we commit ourselves to positive prayerful action.

Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal

”Every year Morrisons supermarket kindly give some dates to Marie Curie to support our Great Daffodil Appeal. This year they have given up a full week, which means in Leeds alone this is a huge 77 collection dates to choose from. Last year, over 3 days in Leeds, Morrisons helped them to raise over £12K. Imagine how much more they can raise by filling more dates with your help, and how many more patients our nurses will be able to support at the end of their lives when they need us most. Last year at Morrisons Wetherby Marie Curie raised over £1700 and this year they are hoping to raise £3000.

The collections are from Monday 9th March to Sunday 15th March (a full week) at Morrisons Wetherby with spaces still available on the following days and periods:-

*Monday 9th – afternoon only

*Wednesday 11th – afternoon only

*Thursday 12th – all day (this is market day so will be really busy and a good day to volunteer!)

*Friday – all day

*Saturday – afternoon only

*Sunday – all day

If you can help and would like volunteer for a few hours then please email Faye Waters on faye.Waters@mariecurie.org.uk”
