As we start the second month of our Centenary celebrations of the founding of the Diocese, Archbishop George asks:
“Have you taken up the Centenary Prayer?”
If you haven’t heard about it already, the Centenary Prayer was created especially for our Centenary Year. It gives thanks to Almighty God for the past 100 years of the Church in our small part of the world, and commends the Diocese, Archbishop, Clergy and Lay Faithful to His loving care and protection for the next 100 years.
There have been many challenges for our Diocese, especially in the past 20 years, but all challenges are opportunities. As we move forward to our future a strong prayer life needs to be the foundation of the Diocese and its people. Only in prayer does faith grow and develop.
“The key that opens the door to the faith is prayer”
Praying for the entire Diocese throughout the year
The Centenary Prayer unites the Diocese as we pray for each other throughout the course of this Centenary Year. Each week there is a different parish to pray for, along with its clergy, people and chaplaincy works. Why not join this Pilgrimage of Prayer and carry the Archdiocese of Cardiff into the future?
