We ask for God's continued blessing for all who have been baptized into God's family, the Church. This month we particularly pray for: Catherine Louise Stubbins baptized on 6th October at St. Andrew's Church, Northwold. "You are called and loved by God the Father and kept safe by Jesus His Son. May the Spirit who hovers over the creation of the world continually breathe His life into you. Amen."
Congratulations and every blessing for the future to Shaun Richard Doughty and Julie Elizabeth Allen, who were joined in holy matrimony on Saturday 5th October at St. Andrew's Church, Northwold. "Heavenly Father, we thank you that in our earthly lives you speak to us of your eternal life; we pray that through their marriage they may know you more clearly, love you more dearly, and follow you more nearly, day by day, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
Please pray for the family and friends of those who have died recently.
