Dromore Cathedral4th February 2024

Rector & Dean: Geoff Wilson, Curate: Trevor McKeown

  • For the season of Lent, that it would be a time of reflection and learning as we use the “Unanswered Prayer Course” on Wednesday evenings, following our midweek services.
  • For the team preparing to travel to Maridi in the autumn of 2024; that the time of preparation would be helpful in galvanising the team and that much fruit would come through the visit.
  • For our monthly “Combined Service” when our two main services worship together; that it would help us all to understand more fully what it means to one in Christ.
  • For those who are involved in leading our Children’s and Youth Ministry; that they would know just how vital their work is and how much it is valued by the wider Church family.
