PRAYER & READINGS

Prayer is many things -

a conversation with God

paying loving attention to God

reflecting on God's presence

a request for help from God.


Our life as a Benedictine parish community encourages us to:

Search for God through personal prayer and lectio divina (prayerful reading of the scriptures).

Place the liturgy as the central point in the life of the parish.

Develop a strong sense of community, making hospitality a key feature as well as finding concrete ways of valuing the gifts of everyone.

Promote on-going theological and spiritual formation for all through courses, study days and talks.

Build a vision of 'church' which transcends the local diocese and fosters a concern for Christian unity.
