Lent

Lent is a time to put our lives in order, remember what really matters and live in the company of someone who really loves us.

To help us do that – to stay focussed on the love of God – experience shows three things help:

Prayer – spending time with God.

Giving money – our charity this year are the Additional Curates Society.

Fasting – giving up some food for the whole of Lent, not eating meat or drinking alcohol on Fridays. In addition Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are Days of Abstinence – we have one full meal and two snacks only. These rules are not required of under-sixteens, pensioners, pregnant women, the sick, those involved in heavy manual labour.

Stations of the Cross: these will be shared between Holy Apostles and ourselves – 7.00 p.m., Fridays. This Friday at St Gabriel’s.

                                                       

Our Lent Book is the course recommended by Bishop Jonathan and can be downloaded for free at  https://www.sswsh.com/fullposts.php

We look to have a Zoom group for the course –which will meet at 7.00 p.m. on Tuesdays or Thursdays (the day will be confirmed at the start of next week).
