Prayers which can be used when you cannot attend a Mass in person are here. Readings for the day are on Universalis.

Please pray...

... for the repose of the souls of Angus McLeod, whose funeral will be at St Theresa's on Thursday 26 August at 2:30 pm, and of Fr Mario Sanderson, who was Parish Priest at the Church of the Sacred Heart in Hove some years ago.

Prayer Group

Thursday 8pm via video-link: a small and informal group meeting to pray and read the scriptures together. If you'd like to join the group, or just 'come and see' you'd be very welcome. Just send an email and you will receive the link for the meeting.

The prayer group is taking an August break, resuming on 2 September.

Praying with children

Godly Play is a Christian movement centred on childhood spirituality – providing training to transform thinking and practice for the whole of life.

 

Colour and Shape is a weekly online Children's Liturgy for young families. Sunday liturgies are uploaded to a YouTube channel and there is also content and social interaction on Facebook.
