5th March - nothing to highlight
Join us for the second of our Lenten themed RYM sessions. This session will be a quiet candlelit reflection on Mary's journey with Jesus towards the cross. We will focus on the sorrowful mysteries, accompanied by appropriate and beautiful art, music, words and silence.
Please note, we're trying out a new venue - the Hughes room at Bishop Eton (about twenty steps away from our usual venue!)
Afterwards, we're going to have board games again - and Natasha will try not to be too competitive!!
