Remember the men who by air and sea and land, are enduring great hardships for our sakes

A Maidenhead church urged prayer for those serving abroad.

The Vicar’s Letter

Dear Friends and Parishioners,-

This will be a very brief letter. Lent will soon be here. Let us make good use of it! I propose to have the usual services, save only that I shall not have more than four or five Men’s Services, as so few men are left with us.…

Lastly, may I ask you all to make of this Lent a second time of National Mission, and above all to remember before God on Friday nights and Sunday evenings, and at other times, the men who by air and sea and land, are enduring great hardships for our sakes.

I remain,

Your faithful friend and Vicar

C.E.M. FRY
