On behalf of the parish I do thank John Rayer for leading this year’s Stewardship Campaign and the rest of the Parish Council for their hard work in preparing the material for it, a task that began in the autumn! I hope in particular that the completion of the exercise in personal discernment was a good experience for you.
Moreover I thank so many of you for the generosity of your response. If you haven’t returned your form yet then please do so as soon as you can. We will be contacting you about your offers to take parish responsibilities within the next few weeks.
You will also notice that the young people in our Confirmation group have also taken part in the process and will be taking up their new parish roles almost straight away.
A RETREAT FOR LENT:
Make some space to develop your relationship with God this Lent. Sign up for our diocesan ‘retreat at home’ called “Saving Grace”. Every week you will receive an email with links to a 25minute video in which our Archbishop John will introduce the theme and the reading. Chris Chapman will deliver the retreat, with others contributing. You will also receive materials to use in your own prayer and reflection. All you have to have to do is sign up and then set aside what space you can for Saving Grace!
