Prayers for Malta

St Paul's Pro-Cathedral, Valletta
The Chancellor of St Paul's Pro- Cathedral in Valletta, Malta, the Revd Canon Simon Godfrey, has requested the prayers of the diocese at this time. Fr Simon writes:

"As you know we are at the very heart of the Repatriation of many hundreds of English speaking people from Libya ,Egypt and the North African countries facing regime change and self determination aswell as many thousands of non English speaking refugees .At present HMS Cumberland and York are spearheading this vital and dangerous work and we see civilian charterd vessels conveying Americans, Italians and other Europeans et cetera on the Valletta waterfront regularly apart from the Hercules air transporters that are landing at our airport in Luqa.

The Home Office have sent many FCO civil servants to supplement our very busy High Commissioner and her Staff and we are keeping them all in our prayers here at the Cathedral.Offers of help from our congregations have not yet been taken up but we are poised to be as usefully practical as we can

At a time like this we will be much supported and bouyed up by the prayers not only of our Hierarchy but of the whole Diocese."
