Praying with the Sunday Readings - a Guide

Where two or three meet in my name, I shall be there with them. Matthew 18: 15-20. Image: people walking

This leaflet explains how to set up and run a scripture prayer group in your parish, based on the model used by the 'Prego' groups in North Wales.

We were much encouraged in this work by Pope Benedict who said at his first Mass as Pope:

There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel,

by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.

This is the essence of our work: to deepen each person’s love of and friendship with Christ, and to encourage them to share their faith with others in small groups so as to build the community, that is church, where they live.

The format of a Prego meeting follows from this – an encounter with Christ Jesus and a sharing of our prayer and faith.
