Littlebourne Benefice


    Now that churches are open again for worship, we are drawing towards the end of this emailed form of Daily Worship. Thank you for your devotion in its use


    The nine days between Ascension and Whitsun is a period for prayer, often called a Novena. Instead of Daily Prayer for the next week we shall follow the Novena. 

    The booklet for use during this period can be obtained through this link. It includes advice on its use and also prayers for every day. 

    Those we remember in our prayers this week are:

    The Sick
    Jean Owen (Geraldine Wyant); David Smith (Joe Mount); Claire Kent (Louise Coakley): Jeanne Males and Ross Whitlock (Bobbie O’Sullivan); Angela Newton (Steve Sheath); Charles Davey (Gordon Bradley); Wendy (Liz Preston); Piers Henderson (Preb Gillean); Residents and staff of Littlebourne House, Oakfield House, and all care and nursing homes
    Recently Departed
