Prayer in Christian life
Prayer is turning the heart towards God.
When a person prays he enters into a living relationship with God.
Prayer is the great gate leading into faith. People who pray no longer live on their own, for themselves, and by their own strength. They know there is a God to whom they can talk. People who pray entrust themselves more and more to God. The effort to pray daily is part of the Christian life. (YouCat 469)
St Catherine's church is open each day, whenever possible, for private prayer, usually during daylight hours.
