            St Alban       St Edmund 

            

Sunday 6 August 2017   The Feast of the Transfiguration                                      

In Our Prayers:

In the Diocese The Deanery of Hadleigh

Area Dean: David Tudor and Lay Chair: Ron McLernon

In the Anglican Communion: the Diocese of Pune (North India)

In the world: For an end to the current spate of acid attacks.

With Christian Aid: Pray for indigenous communities in Latin America, often denied their basic rights, and underrepresented in decision making. 

In the Parish: those who live along: Stafford Road, Stamford Road and Stockes Road

The sick and suffering: Alice Singh, Les Rowe, Clarice, Paula Gray, Paul Gray, Alec Creggan, Eileen Exley, Fiona McGuiness,  Mary Skerritt, Jan Hibbard, Clarence Lawrence, Coraline Edwards, Lyn Wingate, Tony Richards, Daniel Sims, Peggy Sims, Mark Dorrington, Norman Lipman, Jim Harmati, Theresa Lutterodt and Julie Alade.

Please keep Paul Gray in your prayers at this time as he is particularly unwell with cancer.

Those who have died: We should especially remember Mary Richards and her family at this time on the sudden death of her father on Thursday.

It was with great sadness that the Diocese announced last week the death of John Wraw (1959 – 2017) Bishop of Bradwell.  Bishop John was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2014 but has continued to have an active ministry to the very end of his life.  We keep Gillian and his family in our prayers.  The funeral will be held on Monday 7 August at 1pm Chelmsford Cathedral. All are welcome but space is limited. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

Readings for 13 August 2017:

Genesis 37.1-4,12-28    Psalm 105.1-6,16-22,45     Romans 10.5-15    Matthew 14.22-33
