This Month at St. Bede’s
Welcome to November at St. Bede’s
November is another busy time for us here at St. Bede’s, and is also a time of rememberence. Everyone is welcome to any events happening.
Our monthly art and craft morning is happening on Thursday 3rd November at 10.30 am. Join the group for a time of chat and friendship, morning tea and lunch. If you prefer to bring your knitting/embroidery that’s OK too. If you just want to come to lunch then come at 12.00. All welcome – men and women.
All Saints Day and All Souls Day will be celebrated on Sunday 6th November. This will include an opportunity to remember those who have passed away, both recently and in times past.
The Semaphore Community Market will be held on Sunday 6th November, from 10.00 am.
Our song for this month is a beautiful version of Abide with Me sung by Susan Boyle.
Prayers During This Pandemic
Church leaders, including our Archbishop, ask us to pause for prayer at 8 am every Friday.
We are asked to pray for:
* An end to the pandemic
* Healing for people suffering from the illness
* Those researching a vaccine
* Our political and community leaders as they try to provide wise
* Our health workers, as they are at the front line.
Almighty and All–loving God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
We pray to you through Christ the Healer for those who suffer from the Coronavirus Covid–19
in and across the world.
We pray too for all who reach out to those who mourn the loss of each and every person who has died as a result of contracting the disease.
Give wisdom to policymakers, skill to healthcare professionals and researchers, comfort to everyone in distress and a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress.
This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
who showed compassion to the outcast, acceptance to the rejected and love to those to whom no love was shown. Amen.
Archbishop Michael Jackson (Dublin & Glendalough)
