Playing & Praying – Sporting Prayers for Euro 2016 and the Rio 2016 Olympics

//Playing & Praying – Sporting Prayers for Euro 2016 and the Rio 2016 Olympics

A timely book, written by SMA missionary, Father Kevin O’Gorman for both the Euro 2016 championships and the Rio 2016 Olympics, has been published by Saint Paul’s Press. The book is entitled Playing & Praying and it contains a selection of short prayers for all of those involved in the sporting world – coaches, managers, the team and many more.

Over the period of the Euro 2016 championships, the Society of African Missions will publish some of the prayers which Father Kevin has composed on their website – www.sma.ie.

The series of prayers will begin with a Prayer of the Groundsman/Groundswoman. Without their unseen work the matches could not go ahead on pristine surfaces.

Other themes that will be explored over the next four weeks are:

  • 10 June 2016 – Groundskeeper
  • 12 June 2016 – Favourites
