Updates to the printed and downloadable versions for January to June 2013 have been moved to a separate page. There is also a separate page for such special prayers as may be commended from time to time.
Each chaplaincy, with the communities it serves, is remembered in prayer once a year, according to the following pattern:
Each Archdeaconry, with its Archdeacon, is remembered on a Sunday. On the other Sundays, we pray for subjects which affect all of us (e.g. reconciliation, on Remembrance Sunday), or which have local applications for most of us (e.g. the local cathedral or cathedrals). Some chaplains might like to include prayers for the other chaplaincies in their deanery.
In addition to our Chaplains and Assistant Chaplains, the diocese is grateful to many clergy who generously give of their time voluntarily, and this year our Chaplaincy intentions include those whose Archdeacons have indicated that they have either on-going or temporary pastoral care of a chaplaincy or congregation. These clergy are described as "Assistant:"
We also include the Anglican Cycle of Prayer (daily), the World Council of Churches prayer cycle (weekly, prayer resources on site), the Porvoo Cycle (weekly), and festivals and commemorations from the Common Worship Lectionary.
Sundays and Festivals, printed in bold type, have special readings in the Common Worship Lectionary. Lesser Festivals, printed in normal type, have collects in the Common Worship Lectionary. Commemorations, printed in italics, may have collects in Exciting Holiness, and additional, non-biblical, readings for all of these may be found in Celebrating the Saints (both SCM-Canterbury Press). (DEL) refers to the week of the Daily Eucharistic Lectionary.
SUNDAY INTERCESSIONS should, by tradition, include prayer for Bishop Geoffrey 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.
