“Lectio Divina” Fr Kevan Dorgan leads a course in this ancient monastic practice which is becoming more appreciated again in today’s world – in Mater Amabilis, Wansfell Road at 7pm under the auspices of CTAD – Christians of all denominations welcome. (To be confirmed)
Fourth Sunday in Lent.
Mothering Sunday. Luke 2, 25 – 40. The childhood of Jesus and insights into the life of the holy family. The service will be shorter than usual with accessible songs and liturgy. We hope this will have something to say to people of whatever age. Children present will be able to bring their mothers (and other ladies present) the gift of a posy. Our deep thanks to the Meschino family for providing these in memory of Jilly.
