Ash wednesday masses
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. Often called the Day of Ashes, Ash Wednesday starts Lent by focusing the Christian’s heart on repentance and prayer, usually through personal and communal confession.
PRAYER & LITURGY
The God who Speaks
To assist our reading of Matthew’s Gospel there are copies available in the Porches. Do please take a copy and read a Chapter a day (circa 10 mins). Cost is £1.50 but a donation is fine.
The Bishops of England and Wales have produced a brochure called ‘The God who Speaks’ It was available in the churches a few weeks ago and you may have seen it: there are some left. A pdf version of this document is available on the parish website here then follow the God who Speaks link.
