BSC KUCHING: The Archdiocese of Kuching will be launching 1-Hour-A-Day You Are Not Alone Prayer Sessions via Zoom, with Kuching Archbishop Simon Poh set to officiate the first session at 2.45pm on 14 September, the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross.

The Legionaries and prayer groups from the Archdiocese will lead these daily sessions scheduled to take place at 3.00pm – the hour of mercy, when Jesus died on the Cross and the Father revealed his mercy to the world.

For almost 19 months since March 2020, many people have had to endure long periods of lockdown, voluntarily or otherwise. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted lives, particularly in areas concerning the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical well being of those in quarantine, with health issues, or having to stay at home.

Archbishop Simon Poh is concerned that many people do not know where or who to turn to in such times of need. “We want to let them know they are not alone. Jesus is always there.” In quoting (Matthew 18: 20) “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them,” the Archbishop said the group prayer sessions will give assurance to these people.

Should the need arise, the younger generation can always assist their more elderly or technically challenged family members to set up the necessary equipment for these prayer sessions.
