PERSONAL PRAYER St Mary's Church is open every day for prayer and contemplation. Requests for prayer can be written on yellow cards by the lectern near the entrance, or local clergy can be approached directly. You can also pray with pebbles in the Stafford Chapel using the 'pebble pool'. There is a leaflet about how to use it. Hold a pebble as you pray for someone, then put it into the bowl of holy water. Each Wednesday the pebbles will be placed on the altar at the Eucharist and prayed over during the intercessions. We can't have candles for safety reasons, but this gives us a physical symbol of our prayers.
