Archbishop Bernard Longley is inviting everyone to join in this year’s Year of Prayer ahead of the Jubilee Year 2025.

In a short video, recorded at Archbishop’s House, His Grace introduces the Year of Prayer and invites all to pray the ‘Our Father’ with him.

During this year there is a particular focus on the Our Father, and this presents us with a great opportunity to go back to the basics of prayer.

Archbishop Bernard describes the Year of Prayer as a chance to "focus again on what’s at the very heart of our faith in Jesus Christ and our life as witnesses within the Catholic Church. And that focus should be on our prayer".

He adds: "When you pray the Lord’s Prayer, the Our Father… remember these are the words of Jesus Christ himself".
