St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, is hosting an Advent Prayer Path for anyone wanting to take time out to pray and reflect as the busyness of Christmas approaches.
The Prayer Path will be launched in the Cathedral at 8am on Saturday December 1 and will remain open until 4pm on Wednesday December 5. People are welcome to call in anytime during the Cathedral’s opening hours [8am – 4pm daily].
The Prayer Path will include 12 pause points and is optionally interactive. It ends at the Cathedral Labyrinth, a separate prayer path on the Cathedral floor for personal prayer.
“Christmas is a busy season. With all the preparation and demand we can often lose sight of the hope that Jesus brought into this world,” said the Very Rev John Mann, Dean of Belfast.
“You are invited to step aside from a frantic pace and take time to pause, be still and in quiet reflect on the hope, joy and peace Jesus brought when ‘He came and lived among us’.
“The Advent Prayer Path allows you to focus your heart, mind and soul. In quiet prayer and reflection may God remind you of His greatness and hope for you and the world we live in.”
