Call to Prayer for Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Bishop Charles Albertyn

Archbishop Thabo Makgoba calls on Anglicans in the Diocese of Cape Town to say special prayers for Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu at their Sunday services on August 30.

The Diocese is also arranging a Prayer Service for Archbishop Tutu at the Church of the Resurrection, Bonteheuwel, at 3pm on Sunday September 6.

The service will enable people to gather in a public act of worship to support Father Desmond and the Tutu family as he recovers from infection and to celebrate his continuing ministry and presence among us.

It will also give us the opportunity to offer prayers for our deeply-loved former Bishop Suffragan, Bishop Charles Albertyn, who is very ill at the moment.

Choirs, poets, brass bands and the Bonteheuwel-based Jazz Academy are all being asked to showcase their talents at the September 6 service.

The Church of the Resurrection is at 24 David Profit Street, Bonteheuwel.
