Using the Prayer Diary

Each chaplaincy, with the communities it serves, is remembered in prayer once a quarter,
following this weekly pattern:

  • Eastern Archdeaconry: Monday, Saturday
  • Archdeaconry of France: Tuesday, Saturday
  • Archdeaconry of Gibraltar: Wednesday, Saturday
  • Italy & Malta Archdeaconry: Friday
  • Archdeaconry of North West Europe: Thursday
  • Swiss Archdeaconry: Friday
  • Archdeaconry of Germany and Northern Europe
    • Nordic and Baltic Deanery: Monday 
    • Germany: Saturday

On Sundays, we pray for subjects which affect us all (e.g. reconciliation, on Remembrance
Sunday), or which have local applications for most of us (e.g. the local cathedral or cathedrals). This will include Diocesan Staff, Churches in Communion and Ecumenical Partners.

SUNDAY INTERCESSIONS should, by tradition, include prayer for Bishop Robert and the local Head of State by name. In addition, prayers may also include Bishop David (the Suffragan Bishop) and, among the heads of other states, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the leaders of other countries represented in the congregation.
