Prayer vigil to be held as voters go to the polls

A day-long prayer vigil will be held by a South Wales church as voters go to the polls on Thursday.

Churches across Wales have held hustings in the run-up to the General Election and many church halls including St David’s Church Hall in Margam will be used as polling stations as the nation votes on June 8.

Now the new parish priest of Margam Father Edward Owen has decided to hold a special Prayer Intention for the General Election at the Thursday morning Eucharist at St David’s Church in Margam at 9.30am.

The church will be open all day for prayer and there will be Midday Prayer at noon and Evening Prayer at 6pm.

Fthr Owen said, “At the heart of our faith is Prayer and Action for the good of all in our society this day of Prayer gives us an opportunity to pray for a just and fair government for all.”
