'Pause for Hope' ecumenical prayer service for those touched by cancer


Archbishop John McDowell.

The Archbishop of Armagh, the Right Revd John McDowell, will be the preacher at an ecumenical prayer service organised by the UK-based charity, 'Pause of Hope' in St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral, Armagh on Sunday, 15 October at 3.30pm.

The service is being organised for all those whose lives have been touched by cancer.

The aim of the charity is to help people affected by cancer through bringing together in prayer, those who have, or have had cancer, their loved ones, those who care for them, doctors, nurses and carers, those who have responsibility for providing resources, and scientists trying to find a cure.

Bishop Michael Router, Catholic Auxiliary Bishop of Armagh, will lead the service.

During the service, a person affected by cancer will speak about their experience.

The musical accompaniment will be provided by organist Colm Murphy and the Cathedral Choir.

Following the service, light refreshments will be provided in the Synod Hall, along with an opportunity to share stories and experiences with others in a similar situation.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
