The Bishop of Seoul, Peter Kyongho Lee, with
He rained down on them manna to eat, and gave them the grain of heaven.
Today we pray for the Anglican Church of Korea. We remember especially –
Lord Jesus Christ, Manna from heaven, we give you thanks for our partner, the Anglican Church of Korea. We ask you to be with the Church, especially as it proclaims you by word and deed to young people in Korea who are at risk. May you be their food both in this life and the next. This we ask through you who, with the Father and the Spirit, feast with the saints at the heavenly banquet forever. Amen.
The Anglican Church in Korea is made up by three dioceses, Seoul, Daejeon and Busan. The Church works to integrate defectors from the North into South Korean society by giving them support and job training, for example at Grace Café in the grounds of Seoul Cathedral. The Church’s ministry among young people at risk is significant. For example, through the House of Sharing in Daejeon there are schools, drop-in centres, accommodation and psychological help for at-risk youth. In Busan, once the seat of the Japanese Imperial presence in Korea, there are moves to build a church with the Anglican Church of Japan as a symbol of reconciliation between the two countries.
