Our Lady of Grace Conference
In September our Vincentians organised a mass and party for the elderly, sick and housebound and undertook a total of 22 visits to people in the local community and care homes, comforting the bereaved, providing support and companionship to the housebound and visiting the sick, helped with shopping and paid bills. Members also attended the district council meeting.
Opening prayers for our October meeting included a reading of the CAFOD harvest prayer. Members then discussed visits, the mass for the elderly, sick and housebound and the district council meeting.
The meeting concluded by praying for three people who had died recently.
God of mercy, look kindly on Your servants.
As they served You faithfully throughout their lives,
may You give them the fullness of Your peace and joy.
We give thanks for their lives, now caught up in Your eternal love.
We make our prayer through Jesus Christ,
Who is our risen Lord now and forever.
