In the early days of the Church there were, of course, no churches in which to celebrate Mass. Instead, Christians heard Mass in their houses, and if you would like connect with that strand of Catholic experience, please speak to Fr Damian. During Lent he will celebrate, on Fridays at 8pm, Mass in a parishioner's house, for your family and your neighbours and friends.

For the four Sundays of Advent we had Eucharistic Adoration in the church, on Sundays from 1.30pm to 5.30pm, finishing with Benediction. (Don't worry if you don't know what Benediction is, neither did I!) Suffice it to say that many people, wishing to deepen their encounter with Christ rather than spending the lead up to Christmas mired in consumerism, found the time to come to church and spend time in silent prayer before the Lord.

There can be few better Lenten devotions than taking time away from our usually frenzied schedules and sitting in the presence of Christ. However, to do this, we need to ensure that there will be someone present at all times. Therefore, for Eucharistic Adoration to take place, we must have all the slots on the rota filled. You will find it on the table in the church porch. If you have a spare half hour, please sign your name to one or more of the places on the schedule.

During the Stations of the Cross we walk, in imagination and prayer, with Jesus as He goes to His Crucifixion. During Lent, we will be having Stations of the Cross in the church every Friday, at 10.30am and 7.30pm. If you would like to lead one of the evening stations, please sign the list in the church porch.
