Lent 2020

The church gives us Lent as a time when we can reflect more deeply on our Holy Faith and the Life, Passion and Death of Our Lord.

The Mass is the Gift that God has given to enable us to Share in His Eucharistic meal. We come to the Altar and are sent back out again having become involved in the Sacrifice of Calvary, in the Risen Life of Christ and having been fed with Christ Himself.

My flesh is real food, my blood is real drink.

John 6:5

Morning Prayer and Evening prayer last approximately 15 minutes and gives us an opportunity to start and end the day by giving thanks to God for his goodness. If you don’t usually attend either of these, why not come along to either, or both, on one ore more days during lent. Morning Prayer is usually at 9am and Evening Prayer at 5:45pm – but do look at the calendar to note any variation.

Several events and meetings are currently cancelled or postponed – See our Coronavirus update page for details.

Tuesday Evenings – Bread of Life

On Tuesday evening after Mass (7pm) there will be a chance to deepen your understanding of the Eucharist via a four part course called ‘Bread of Life’. The course is designed for both beginners and more experienced members of the church who want to understand their Christian Life through the lease of the Eucharist.

  • 3rd March – “I am the Bread of Life” -The history of the Eucharist
  • 10th March – “He has Reconciled us to God” – What is Confession?
  • 17th march – “The Word of the Lord” – Scripture
  • 24th March – “Go in Peace to Love and Serve the Lord” – Evangelism

Each session lasts about an hour and starts with a short film specifically made for this course. There will be direct teaching, bible reading and discussion on the points raised.

Wednesday Mornings – Stations of the Cross

The celebration of Mass at 9:30am on Wednesday mornings will commence with Stations of the Cross

Thursdays – Mass at the ‘Chapel of St. Margaret’

On Thursdays in Lent Mass will be offered at 11:30am at ‘St. Margaret’s Chapel’ (Margaret Shand’s home). Space is limited, but it would be lovely for two or three people to join this celebration of Mass with her. Please ‘book in’ with Fr. Edward so that places can be allocated.
