St Catherine’s spiritual service takes to cyber space!
The chaplain at St Catherine’s Hospice has set up a new service which allows patients and their families to request a prayer at the touch of a button.
Ian Dewar has set up a page on the hospice website which people can visit to ask for help putting together a prayer for a particular person, problem or celebration.
It is an extension of the practice which often sees prayer requests left on slips of paper in the hospice chapel, commonly containing the name of a loved one they would like remembering. Ian hopes the new web page will make the service more accessible and open up the idea to more people.
He explains: “There are occasions in life when we want to express a thought, a hope or even a moan to God. The difficulty is we often can’t quite find the words or we want to get to a particular place to say the prayer but just can’t manage it.
“This service is designed for just those occasions. If you would like a member of the chaplaincy team to remember you, your concerns or your joys in their daily prayers you can now visit our website and fill in the form.”
