ECUMENICAL WALK OF WITNESS SERVICE AT OUR LADY’S, SUNDAY 19 JANUARY – 4pm Our Lady’s is part of the Tarleton Walking Day Ecumenical Group and as such, we will be hosting the annual service this year.  Please make a note in your new diaries! The annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity begins in two weeks’ time, on Saturday, January 18, and continues through to Saturday, January 25. The theme for 2020 is “They Showed Us Unusual Kindness.” (Acts 28:2) Please join with Christians around the world praying “that all may be one… that the world may believe” (John 17:21). You can also join with members of other Christian churches and communities in our area for this service at Our Lady’s on 19 January. There will be refreshments in the hall afterwards, where you can meet with fellow Christians in a more social setting!
