British Bishop’s call to prayer.(The Irish Catholic)

Bishop Kieran Conry of Arundel and Brighton, who heads up the Bishops’ Department for Evangelisation and Catechesis made his call to coincide with Mission Sunday on 16th September.

“I would like to invite every Catholic, especially during the Year of Faith, to pause for a moment of prayer of praise and thanksgiving at 3.00pm if possible, or perhaps when you break for lunch, on the first Friday of every month” he said. In so doing, Bishop Conroy said “you are not only deepening your relationship with Jesus, but quietly and confidently witnessing to your faith to those around you”.
