You bid your faithful people to cleanse their hearts and prepare with joy for the Paschal Feast. Through our worship and activities we do indeed engage this process on our way to Easter
Lent is now upon us. With Ash Wednesday we begin our 40 day pilgrimage to Holy Week and Easter. We enter into the two tasks of Lent, reflection on our human condition, and care for those in need.
Epiphany draws to a close with the account of Jesus' Transfiguration in this Sunday's Gospel. From here both he and we move on toward Jerusalem, and the Passion and Resurrection. To prepare for this we celebrate Shrove Tuesday and then observe Ash Wednesday. The parish continues its life with new activties and a new intensity.
On the Fifth Sunday after Epiphany we still get a bit of calm before the storm. Lent will soon be upon us! As we get ready for a change of seasons of the Church Year, we have Music with the Angels, some interesting Food For Thought. We look forward to Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, and a workshop on the Anglican Rosary as a way to deepen our spiritual practice
