Lent... and looking towards Easter

Following the Christmas season in the Christian calendar we moved first into Epiphany (the Manifestation of Christ) and then into Lent with Ash Wednesday on 14th February, and so on towards Easter. A Lenten Prayer for everyone to use was included in the Parish Press on the First Sunday of Lent-

"... Almighty and Everlasting God, you hate nothing that you have made, and you forgive the sins of all who are penitent; create and make in us new and contrite hearts that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen"

The 2018 Film Nites are held monthly from March, as are the monthly Saturday Club activities - and both are for anyone across the Parish - see the weekly Parish Press or contact the Parish Office for more details. ... and looking a little further ahead, the 2018 Winter Woolies and Other Wonders Market is coming fast - on Saturday 2nd June from 9.30am... mark your diaries now and keep watching the Parish Press and this page for more details.
