 OUR CHARITY “ACTION4CAMBODIA”

An appeal for our Parish Charity, “Action4Cambodia”, will be made in both St Alban’s & Good Shepherd over the weekend of 6/7 February. Could I also ask that you say the following Prayer for Cambodia :-

A Prayer for Cambodia.

We ask Mary, the Mother of our Saviour, to help the people of Cambodia. We ask her to intercede for us so that God’s love and care may be felt in the lives of those wounded in body and spirit, and suffering from the breakdowns in society. We pray for those who are trying to improve the lives of the people of Cambodia and ask that God may give them the vision of a new, peaceful and invigorated nation and the means to create it. Our Lady of Cambodia, pray for them. Our Lady of Cambodia, pray for us.

 

Tai Chi classes will begin in Good Shepherd Hall on Wednesday 3rd February from 1.30pm to 3 pm. Cost is £2.50 per session which includes tea and biscuits.
