St. Peter’s Parish Prayer Group meets on a Thursday evening at 7.30pm in the Parish Room and 8pm during term time after the Holy Hour.
Our main purpose is to pray for the needs of the Parish and to offer fellowship to Catholics who wish a deeper understanding of their faith.
We start with a decade of the Rosary asking for Our Lady’s intercession.
This is followed by a time of praise which includes the reading of Psalms.
After offering God our praise we enter into a time of silence where we individually listen to what the Lord is saying to us through Scripture.
After approximately 10 minutes we break the silence and share the passages of scripture while someone writes and discerns the overall theme.
We then have 15 minutes of teaching on an aspect of church life from Scripture, Catechism or the life of a Saint.
At 8.45pm we have intercessory prayer for the Parish when we pray for the intentions placed in the box at the back of the Church. We also pray for personal intentions, the wider community and the needs of the world.
At 9.00pm, we have a time of sharing were those who wish can share their experiences of what the Lord has been doing in their lives over the past week.
We conclude the evening with tea or coffee.
When asked we can offer Prayer Ministry to anyone in need.
The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham
Members of the Parish Prayer Group recently visited the shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham and took with them all the prayers and petitions requested by parishioners. A Novena of shared Masses is being offered at the Basilica of Our Lady of Walsingham for the intentions of Mgr Kerr and parishioners.
