Lent and Easter
The 40 days before Easter are called "Lent". An opportunity to give time to God and reflection. Not just to give up something.
This year St Mary's annual Lent reflection series is called "Were You There?"
It runs on Thursdays,
from 7 March
The reflections are 15 minutes long, followed by a soup and bread lunch. Follow the link to see the paintings and a summary of the reflections. Click here
for the leaflet.
The Easter Walkway down the length of St Mary's will be here again with an opportunity to reflect on the last days of Jesus' life. This is from 15 to 20 April (Holy Week).

Holy Week and Easter
We remember and celebrate the transforming love of God and his action through Jesus Christ's death on the cross, mending our broken relationship with him.
