Thought from Fr. Colm - 27th March 2020

We now, as Parishioners of the Durham Martyrs Parish have to develop our very own discipline of praying from the confines of our own. I hope over the coming weeks that we can help with this. Can I suggest that as Pope Francis designated this Friday as an hour of prayer, we might remember each evening at 5 our health workers, especially those in the parish, the lonely and most importantly-the sick. We can say that that hour is the hour set aside as a parish to join together in prayer. Don’t worry if you are busy, some of you have families to look after.  Can we say our parish prayer together each morning at 9.00am.  I usually say Mass at that time. Keep in touch.
