Our gratitude to God for all that we have and all that we are inspires the generosity of our response. So far some 120 offers have been made to fill the roles the parish needs to fulfill its mission. If you have yet to return a form, we’d still love to hear from you as there is so much more potential.
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!

We will reproduce the weekly material and make copies available in the foyer.
Many chose last year to join a Monday evening zoom group to share reflections. If you wish to do so, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Trudy at email@example.com
