2009Bcalendar - Diocese in Europe by yaoyufang



This calendar has been compiled to help us to pray together for one another and for our
common concerns. Each chaplaincy, with the communities it serves, is remembered in
prayer once a year, according to the following pattern:
       Eastern Archdeaconry                               January, February
       Archdeaconry of France                             March, April
       Archdeaconry of Gibraltar             -            May, June
       Diocesan staff                        -            mainly in July
       Italy & Malta Archdeaconry            -            July
       Archdeaconry of North West Europe -                August, September
       Archdeaconry of Germany and Northern Europe
               Nordic and Baltic Deanery -                October
               Germany                       -            November
       Swiss Archdeaconry                    -            December
Each Archdeaconry, with its Archdeacon, is remembered on a Sunday. On the other
Sundays, we pray for subjects which affect all of us (e.g. reconciliation, on Remembrance
Sunday), or which have local applications for most of us (e.g. the local cathedral or
cathedrals). Some chaplains might like to include prayers for the other chaplaincies in their

We also include the Anglican Cycle of Prayer (daily, www.aco.org), the Porvoo Cycle
(weekly, marked ** in this leaflet, www.porvoochurches.org), and festivals and
commemorations, which may be observed according to local custom, from the Common
Worship Lectionary (www.cofe.anglican.org/worship/liturgy/commonworship). All are
published annually, and available from Church House Bookshop, Great Smith Street, London
SW1P 3NZ. Information regarding Chaplaincies is as shown as in the 2009 Year Book
unless updates are available.

Sundays and Festivals, in bold face, have readings in the Common Worship Lectionary.
Lesser Festivals, printed in normal type, have collects in the Common Worship Lectionary.
Commemorations, printed in italics, may have collects in Exciting Holiness, and additional,
non-biblical, readings for all of these may be found in Celebrating the Saints (both SCM-
Canterbury Press).
(DEL) refers to the week of the Daily Eucharistic Lectionary.

SUNDAY INTERCESSIONS should, by tradition, include prayer for Bishop Geoffrey and the
local Head of State by name. In addition, prayers may also include Bishop David (the
Suffragan Bishop) and, among the heads of other states, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and
the leaders of other countries represented in the congregation.

The booklet Time for God’s Creation, which contains background information and prayers,
can be downloaded from the European Christian Environmental Network site www.ecen.org.
Other useful resources for Creationtide, including Harvest, and One World Week, are Bread
of Tomorrow: Praying with the World’s Poor, edited by Janet Morley, SPCK, new edition
2004, and Celebrating One World: A Worship Resource on Social Justice, edited by Linda
