Have your say

In the light of current conflicts in Iraq and Syria, Bishop Robert Paterson has issued a call to prayer.

Bishop Robert said: ‘If you pray, I ask you to find a time when you can gather with others to spend an hour in prayer for Iraq, Syria and all victims of injustice and brutality.

‘This call extends to all who believe, whether Christian or those of another faith; even those who have no faith may take time out to be silent and bring to mind the present critical time.

‘I will be in the island’s cathedral in Peel between 7 and 8pm on Friday, September 5, and welcome all to join me there.’
