The bishops of England and Wales have asked Catholics to join in an Anglican week of prayer for the conversion of the country.

Fr Christopher Thomas, general secretary of the bishops’ conference, told Vatican Radio that the bishops had responded positively to an appeal from the Anglican bishops to join a week of prayer, “Thy Kingdom Come”, leading up to Pentecost.

In a letter to every serving Anglican parish priest, the Church of England bishops called for “a week of prayer for the evangelisation of our nation” from 8-15 May. It will focus on the Lord’s Prayer, the Anglican bishops say. “Imagine every Anglican, perhaps even every Christian, in this nation praying that prayer together with the specific intention that all may come to know Jesus as Lord,” they said.
