  • 1. DIOCESE IN EUROPE CALENDAR AND PRAYER DIARY, JULY TO DECEMBER 2010 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 - 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 deanery. We also include the Anglican Cycle of Prayer (daily,, the Porvoo Cycle (weekly, marked ** in this leaflet,, and festivals and commemorations, which may be observed according to local custom,from the Common Worship Lectionary ( worship/liturgy/commonworship). Sundays and Festivals, printed in bold type, have special 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. CREATIONTIDE, HARVEST, ONE WORLD WEEK, WEEK OF PRAYER FOR WORLD PEACE The booklet Time for God’s Creation, which contains background information and prayers for Creationtide, can be downloaded from the European Christian Environmental Network site One World Week (, which is in October, takes as its theme Peacing Together One World. It is preceded by the Week of Prayer for World Peace, with prayer leaflets available by post, and a focus on the Prayer for World Peace: Lead me from death to life, from falsehood to truth. Lead me from despair to hope, from fear to trust. Lead me from hate to love, from war to peace. Let peace fill our heart, our world, our universe.
