Prayers for Manchester
We think of our colleagues in Christ in Manchester today and join our prayers with the people of Manchester Diocese, for those killed and injured and their loved ones.
We also give thanks for the work of the emergency services and the bravery, compassion and kindness of ordinary people who helped those caught up in the attack.
Many of our churches will be open for Mass, prayers and the lighting of candles.
At Hereford Cathedral prayers are said on the hour between 11am-4pm and everyone is most welcome to join.
A Collect for Peace:
"O God, the author of peace and lover of concord,
to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom:
Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies;
that we, surely trusting in your defence, may not fear the power of any adversaries;
through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord.
