Lenten Parish Prayer 2021

 

Father in Heaven,

You have blessed me with the great gift of Life.

May I use this time of Lent preciously.

May I discover who I really am,

as you did Lord in the desert?

May I see what I must embrace,

What I must discard.

Then I will see for the first time

the person I am called to be.

and rejoice in it. 

  Amen

 

Our St Vincent de Paul conference here in Aylesbury

 

“Last week on Wednesday 24th our SVP group held its second meeting on Zoom.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is built on prayer and our friendship with each other, and so it was wonderful to see the 7 of us, say together our opening prayer and to hear Father John’s reflection.

 The first item on our agenda always concerns the parishioners we would visit, often the sick and housebound.

How we miss seeing them face to face.

 For the time being, we cannot visit but we phone them, usually weekly or fortnightly.

We look forward to listening and talking to each other, and a simple phone call can help both people feel less lonely and isolated.

 If you, or someone you know, would like to talk to one of us, please contact Marie on 01296 428478, and one of us will phone you back.”
