Whether you are new to the Parish, a visitor to
the area, or an existing church member, St John the
Evangelist, Wallingford is a thriving Parish with
parishioners of all ages joining together to
celebrate the Roman Catholic faith.
THE PRAYER LIFE OF THE PARISH
“Where two or three are gathered together in my name,
there am I.” (Matt 18:20)
Christ is the inspiration and the motivation of all that
we do and are in the parish. We are called to build a
personal relationship with Christ through our prayer life.
As a parish, we try to provide opportunities for prayer –
the celebration of the Eucharist being the parish’s central
prayer. In order to prepare for the Eucharist, we need to
provide other opportunities for prayer. Throughout the year
we gather to prepare for the major feasts of Advent and
Lent, the rosary is prayed regularly, and various prayer
groups meet. Prayer brings us together so that we are more
than just a mere collection of isolated individuals.
