31/07/17ST CUTHBERT & ST AIDAN DAILY PRAYER DIARY
EXPLANATORY NOTE REGARDING THE NEW PRAYER DIARY.
You will have noticed some names are written in italics. These are saints or people who appear in the Church of England Lectionary.
They appear on the day when the church remembers who they were and what they did.
