Prayer event 'Thy Kingdom Come' in new Iona Room


The Bishop of Clogher Rt. Revd John McDowell

Christians of all denominations from around the world are being encouraged by the Archbishop of Canterbury to join in a focused time of prayer known as 'Thy Kingdom Come' from Ascension, Thursday 25th May until Pentecost on 4th June.

St Macartin's Cathedral, Enniskillen, is joining with other Christian communities and will be opening their new Iona Prayer Room in the Cathedral Hall from Thursday 25th May between 9am and 9pm each day for formal, focused or private prayer.

The formal prayer sessions will continue throughout each day with readings from the Old Testament, Gospels and New Testament, as well as morning and evening prayer. Focused prayer will include those for children, the government, education and for Fermanagh.

There will also be time outside the organised prayer times for private prayer.

The rector of St Macartin's Cathedral, the Very Revd Kenneth Hall said: 'Our prayer is that everyone within the Cathedral family will find the time to spend at least one hour in prayer during the 10 days.'
