Notices

At this difficult time there are no regular notices being published, but we hope the information below is of some help.

 

 

Spiritual Communion

The Cathedral clergy are continuing to pray on your behalf, praying for you and for our world. We are continuing to function and are discovering news ways of providing service and hope. Prayers can be asked for at prayers@gloucestercathedral.org.uk.
 
As worshippers will be unable to attend the Eucharist and receive the sacrament of Holy Communion in the weeks ahead, there is a form of worship commended by the Church of England for use in such pastoral circumstances. Please follow this link.
 
Morning and Evening Prayer are also available to be used at home. You can download them here.

Keeping in Touch

We will continue to update you via email as things develop. I will be regularly posting written reflections in the latest news section of the website and if you don’t already, please follow the Cathedral on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Isolation can be a worrying and lonely experience. Please do keep checking in with each other.

A Prayer in Lockdown

As a Cathedral Community we pray daily for all of those affected by the virus and their families, as well as the healthcare professionals working tirelessly to protect our communities.  
 
The doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked. (John 20.19)
 
Ever present God,
be with us in our isolation,
be close to us in our distancing,
be healing in our sickness,
be joy in our sadness,
be light in our darkness,
be wisdom in our confusion,
be all that is familiar when all is unfamiliar,
that when the doors reopen
we may with the zeal of Pentecost
inhabit our communities
and speak of your goodness
to an emerging world.
For Jesus’ sake.

Amen.
