A new ‘Pause for Prayer’ video resource has been launched to accompany all on the Year of Prayer journey.
The monthly video reflection is hosted by assistant priest Fr Toby Duckworth, who serves in the parishes of St Dunstan, Kings Heath and St Jude, Maypole. Fr Toby is also the newly appointed Diocesan Spirituality Contact.
Together with Paul Northam, Diocesan Co-ordinator for the Jubilee Year 2025 ‘Pilgrims of Hope’ from the Diocesan Office for Mission, and James Trewby, Columban Justice and Peace Education Worker, the trio will produce regular episodes focused on teaching, testimony and intentions.
In preparation for the 2025 Jubilee Year, 2024 has been designated a Year of Prayer by Pope Francis.
There is a particular focus on the Our Father, and this presents us with a great opportunity to go back to the basics of prayer.
Pause for Prayer is a new series of videos to encourage us to press the pause button on our busy lives and to be present to God.
Each time will be part teaching, part testimony and part something to pray for.
This weekend we begin a new Church Year with the Season of Advent as we prepare for Christ to come again in glory and prepare to celebrate the Feasts of Christmas in a few weeks time.
Please join in our Advent activities. This is also the start of the Year of Prayer when we recommit ourselves to our spiritual journey with the Lord.
