Announcements

The Great Fast

Here are suggestions for what you should be doing during the Lenten season:

1) Pray – talk to God. He will listen and respond. Say prayers from your heart as well as a prayer book.

2) Go to Church – not only on Sundays but to Presanctified Liturgies and All Souls Saturday Liturgies

3) Repentance – repair your relationship with God. Accept that you can do better then strive to do so.

4) Fast – discipline yourself spiritually in what you do as well as what or how much you eat

5) Read – the Bible and other spiritual books. We have a wealth of good books for you to purchase.

6) Alms – give to those in need. Ask yourself if you’re giving of your time, talent and treasure to those in our community for the glory of God.

To discuss these points in more detail please talk to Father Sid.

Parish Council Meeting

The parish council and other interested parishioners will be meeting on Wednesday, March 16. We’ll receive details of people’s research for current and future projects.  You’re invited to attend and bring your ideas.
