Morocco Update

Earlier last month I posted a notice about the cancellation of services at St John the Evangelist Church in Casablanca on Sunday 20 February, due to the proximity of the Church to the place where demonstrations were due to be held that day.

The chaplain of St John's, the Revd Mark Cregan (left), has written to thank the diocese for our prayers for the situation in North Africa. He notes that demonstrations were in fact held on 20 February in Tangier, Al Hoceima and Casablanca, and some continue to be held all over Morocco but there are not widespread reports available. Services resumed at St John's last Sunday 27th, but Mark continues to monitor the situation carefully.

Mark would be grateful for the continued prayers of the people of the diocese for our two Anglican churches in Morocco, St John's in Casablanca and St Andrew's in Tangier, that the congregations will be able to continue to hold services each week. He also asks for prayers that any changes in Morocco may occur peacefully.
