SAINT THOMAS THE APOSTLE FINSBURY PARK
SUNDAY 2ND AUGUST 2020
8TH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
Pray for the new Province of Alexandria, created from the former Diocese of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa in the Episcopal Church of Jerusalem and the Middle East:
St John’s Upper Holloway, Alan Comfort (Vicar), Debbie Onyekwuluje and Uzor Monu (Lay Preachers).
For all who helped to make the church reopening a success. We pray for the PCC meeting this week.
Muslims throughout the world, unable to perform the pilgrimage to Mecca. We pray for all those living in the world’s slums and substandard housing and ask that they are able to receive help and support at this very difficult time, when much of the day work they rely on is no longer available. We pray for the people of central Africa where measles is making an unwelcome comeback. In this country we pray for the people of Oldham as they prepare for possible strengthening of restrictions. We ask for your blessing for all art and culture venues as they struggle to adapt and sustain their vital work.
