Light up the World in Prayer

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which the Archbishop of Canterbury invited people around the world to join. The wave of prayer runs for 11 days between the Christian festivals of Ascension and Pentecost. During this time, people are asked to pray in whatever way they want and with whoever they want for others to come to know Jesus Christ. 

NEW for Young People: The Prayer - join in online prayer with the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and youth around the world at 1:15 pm AT on Pentecost Sunday.

Activities in the Diocese of Fredericton

The Parishes of Richmond and Woodstock have a number of community activities planned in addition to parishioners praying for their "five" and adding their lights to the global map:

Thursday May 7 St Mark's Jackson Falls 7pm
A time of gentle prayer, music, short readings and lighting candles of hope with the sound of the falls in the background

Monday May 13 St John's Richmond Corner 6.30pm
A Service Of Light for our Wounded World – time to reflect, time for silent prayer, time to pray aloud – focus on The Lord's Prayer. Thy Kingdom Come. Hymns and short readings

Thursday 16 2 pm meeting at Hartland Library Carpark
Pray, Walk the Bridge and have a tea/coffee with us afterwards as we Bless the river and Pray for Creation.

Christ Church Cathedral folks are meeting at 5:15 pm each weeknight (after Ascension) to look at the Novena together. All are invited to join the weekday Morning (8:45 am) and Evening (4:45 pm) Prayer Offices in the Cathedral.

The Parish of Grand Manan will be very involved in Thy Kingdom Come activities, beginning with a commissioning service for all in the parish at the Church of the Ascension on Ascension at 7:00 pm.

Please let us know what your parish is doing.
