This Month’s Person to Pray for – Please pray for Guy Nasasagare in his role as Communication Officer for the Province of the Anglican Church of Burundi especially for safety as he travels to visit the different dioceses.

St Mark’s partnership with Burundi started in the 1970’s with a commitment to pray for the Church and the country.
We continue that link today in various ways but particularly through our support of two parishes, St. Mark’s, Ngagara and St. Mark’s, Gahosha.
Annually we have Burundi Sunday when we connect with one of those parishes and support a project of their choosing.
