On 15th April 2016 Archbishop Sentamu led prayers in East Cottingwith  as part of his Pilgrimage of Prayer, Witness and Blessing. mages from the day can be seen on the right along with images of the  prayers and verse used on the day. The Archbishop also provided us all with Prayer Beads to help guide us through our prayers. The larger bead represents The Lord's Prayer and the three smaller beads the three responses. 
It was a great privilege to have Archbishop Sentamu visit the village and I am sure the small numbers who attended found his words enlightening.

For more on the Pilgimage of Prayer, Witness and Blessing then please visit the Archbishop's own web site at http://www.archbishopofyork.org/
