Deacon's Corner

Hello and welcome to Deacon's Corner! This is a new page on our website and we will be adding to it as time goes by.

 

Monthly Examen

The Prayer of Examen is a form of prayer developed by St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491–1556) as part of his work on “spiritual exercises.” It is often a prayer at the end of the day but is also used at other times. It is a way of reviewing the day with God with the intention of examining our need for forgiveness and healing, reconciliation and recommitment.

Deacon Theresa will lead our Examen once a month on the last Monday of each month from 7.30pm. During our sessions we will thank God for the gifts of life and the past month and ask Him to allow us to see the month as we have lived it and in light of God’s will.

Forthcoming dates for Examen - all sessions start at 7.30pm and should finish by about 8.45pm

Monday 28th June

Crosslight Advice - Working with Ealing Foodbank

Crosslight Advice is an independent, community-focused Christian charity working to alleviate poverty caused by problem debt and lack of financial capability.

Crosslight’s vision is to restore dignity and hope to those in need by reducing debt-poverty and improving financial capability through the provision of free face-to-face advice, money education, and ongoing support. The aim is to meet people at their point of need and support them through to full restoration, however long that takes.

Crosslight works hand-in-hand with local partners including Ealing Foodbank to provide advice at ‘drop-in’ centres, online and through case work.

Crosslight is currently looking for volunteers to help with their work alongside Ealing Foodbank - click here to read more about Crosslight's work and volunteer roles.
