Cycles of Prayer offer important and helpful resources for the Intercessions of the People. Long a practice which involves the active participation of the people, the Prayers of the Faithful form a critical part of the Eucharist, and bring the concerns of the world to the community and the concerns of the community for the world into the body of the worship of the gathered community.

As well as providing a guide for ways of praying for the universal Church, Cycles of Prayer also highlight the local church or groups of churches, issues of justice and peace, specific concerns of our Diocese and our partners, and ways to bring to the local community an awareness of the broader church and our relationships within it.

A general word about cycles: specific foreign language names of Bishops and/or Clergy are often difficult to pronounce and can be an embarrassment both for those trying to say the names and those praying along. Don't worry about specific names; simply name the Diocese or area – that is more than appropriate.

The ongoing maintenance of the cycle is being handled by Alison Meredith in the Dean's Office at Cathedral Place. Please do not hesitate to contact Alison for help and advice.
