Cycle of Prayer: 24-30 June

Reading this week's prayers is Lydia Reese. "Hello, I’m Lydia! Originally from the mountains of East Tennessee, I find myself in Dorset by way of  the Hilfield Friary community, where I realised God was calling me to ordained ministry. I also met my husband, Jimmy, at Hilfield, and we now live in Dorchester where he is vicar of St. Mary the Virgin. As a lover of the natural world I am very much looking forward to serving my curacy in the beautiful benefice of West Purbeck and joining in with what God is doing there."
