FROM FR TIM
LENT: In spite of the freezing conditions, it has been very edifying to see how many of you still managed to attend even weekday Masses during the past week. Thank you for your good example.
We are now well into Lent, so may I remind you that as always we will offer many opportunities for those of you who wish to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation before the Easter Triduum, which begins on Maundy Thursday.
There will be a Pastoral Area Reconciliation Service on Wednesday 21 March at 6.30pm in Hope University Chapel.
We will also have Reconciliation Services as usual in our two parishes at the beginning of Holy Week:
Monday 26 March at 7.30pm in St Mary’s and Tuesday 27 March at 7.30pm in Bishop Eton.
Priests will be available after all the weekday Masses during the last two weeks of Lent and of course you may always call at the monastery and ask for a priest at any reasonable time on any given day.
LEARNING TO SIGN THE MASS: Some of our young people will be learning to sign parts of the Mass before the evening Mass at St Mary’s on Saturday 10 March. If you wish to take part please go to the Parish Centre at St Mary’s at 4.00pm on that day.
EVENING PRAYER with the pastoral area clergy will take place in Hope University Chapel this Wednesday Evening (7 March) at 6.00pm. Refreshments are offered in the chaplaincy afterwards.
