Tie a Ribbon on the Railings

Your ribbons can be placed on the railings at St Cross by Mobberley Road.  Ribbons are also a symbol of awareness and support.  In the healthcare sector sector the use of coloured ribbons helps to create public awareness of disability, medical conditions, health and other issues.  During the time of Advent and Christmas anyone can place a ribbon of any colour on the church railings on Mobberley Road in these difficult times for so many people.  

 

Prayers we can use in these times.

God of compassion, be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation. In their loneliness, be their consolation; in their anxiety, be their hope; in their darkness, be their light; through him who suffered alone on the cross, but reigns with you in glory, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Compassionate God, we entrust to your tender care those who are ill or in pain, knowing that whenever danger threatens your everlasting arms are there to hold them safe. Comfort and heal them in body, mind or spirit, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
