Diocese of London's Week of Prayer comes to St Paul's

As part of its Capital Vision 2020 project and following on from its success last year, the Diocese of London is again calling on all people to visit St Paul's for a special Week of Prayer in June.

For the whole week beginning Monday 9 June, the Cathedral's Chapel of St Michael and St George will be used as an interactive prayer space by the Diocese, inviting all people from its 400 parishes and beyond to come to the Cathedral in what the Bishop of London describes as a 'great wave of prayer'.

Commenting on the significance of the Prayer Week's timing, the Rt Rev Richard Chartres said: "We will embark upon another week of prayer, starting at midnight on the great Feast of Pentecost, for "the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.” (Romans VIII.26). We will finish at midnight on Trinity Sunday. This is a deliberate setting aside of seven days to remind us that all our days must be shot through with prayer and practising the presence of God."

The chapel will be open for prayer throughout each day and people are invited to attend as individuals or as part of wider parish and church groups.
