Greetings in the Name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ !
This year the month of October begins with Ember Day. It is a day when we remember and pray for those who are serving in various capacities in the Church. We especially pray for those who are in training for the ministry in the theological institutions, ordinands who are contemplating offering themselves for ordination, candidates in training for Local Ordained Ministry, and also those who are called to the various offices in the Sacred Ministry of the Church. Being such an important day I hope that we take time to uphold them in our prayer. Despite their high calling to the Sacred Ministry, they are like earthen vessels which can fall and break apart at any time. Do remember their families too. Like any other families, their needs are basically the same, where at times patience is inevitably stretched to its very limit.
From the 7th until 9th October we are inviting all those who are planning to have their marriage solemnised in the Cathedral to attend a Pre-Marriage Course. It is also open to those who were married recently ……..
