Prayers for Peace and Justice

First Tuesday in the month
Online via Zoom: 12noon – 12.20pm
All are welcome to join our monthly Prayers for Peace and Justice on the first Tuesday of each month.  We use this time to come together to reflect and pray for the safety of all and peace across the world. The prayer intentions focus on social responsibility issues, drawing on the Cathedral’s four priorities in this area: homeless and vulnerable people; mental health and wellbeing; young people; and environmental sustainability.

Please email for the zoom link to join us.
