MARY’S MONTH OF MAY

https://bishopoffulham.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/Facebook-Rosary-Square.jpg

Each Friday in May at 12pm you are invited to join in and #PrayTheRosary.

Pope Francis is encouraging households to join together in praying the Rosary throughout May, and we are encouraging families to do the same. Join Bishop Jonathan this coming Friday as we enter into Mary’s month of May, a month where we can join with her in celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This livestream is especially helpful for those unfamiliar with this ancient prayer as well as being a helpful aid for those who pray it regularly already.

Each Friday in May at 12pm you are invited to join in with praying the holy rosary via Facebook Livestream

Sunday 26th April 2020 (Easter 3)

Stations of the Resurrection

As we continue to worship and pray at home, The Society and The Church Union have published Stations of the Resurrection.  In this devotion we follow Jesus and the disciples from Easter morning through to Pentecost. They follow the same pattern as the Stations of the Cross, with a scripture reading, meditation and a prayer. Through these scenes we share in the disciples’ doubts, their misunderstandings, their fears, but most of all their joy in the Risen Jesus. It is the Resurrection of Jesus that, in these very strange times, is our strength and hope.  You can download the resource here: https://www.churchunion.co.uk/uploads/Stations_of_the_Resurrection_v2_2.pdf
