Wednesday 4th November - Icon of the Day
‘Who are you, O God, and who am I?’
Attributed to St Francis of Assisi
Image: The San Damiano Cross, 12th Century - the large Romanesque rood cross before which St. Francis of Assisi was praying when he is said to have received the commission from the Lord to rebuild the Church. It now hangs in the Basilica of Saint Clare in Assisi.
In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we pray for young people suffering from low self-esteem.
In these unprecedented times, St Mary’s is reaching out and supporting our community in many ways, especially online. But with activities in our buildings greatly restricted, we no longer receive the previous level of financial support from collections at Services, nor from hiring out the church and hall buildings.
If you can help us financially to continue to offer Christ's love to our community in these difficult times, as those before us have done down the centuries, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':
