Giving up for Lent: Fasting and Abstinence are good ways to show we take God seriously and are sorry for our sins. We should abstain from meat on Fridays if we are aged between 14 & 60, are not with child or involved in heavy labour, or if the fast would hurt our health. In those circumstances we should give some extra money to charity or time to prayer. Who should fast is as above, except the age rule begins at 16. We fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by eating no more than one full meal and two snacks.

Electoral Roll: This is a new year for the Roll. Even if you are already on the Roll you need to sign up again. The Roll is a way of being part of St Gabriel’s. It allows you to vote and speak at the Annual meeting. The Roll will open again on 3rd March, forms are available at the back of church. The Legal bits. You may be on more than one Roll and there is no cost. Members of other churches may join the Roll. You do have to have been baptised. If you don’t live in the Parish you may join the Roll if you have worshipped here over a period of six months. If you want to know more, please see Fr Owen or James Farmer.   


If you would like to learn more about the Christian Faith or prepare for Confirmation, please see Fr Owen.
