Annunciation of the Lord  – March 25th

Our Lenten practices are designed to make us more aware of the choices and direction in our lives. The Angel Gabriel gave Mary a choice. It was God’s plan to use her as the bearer of his Son, but she didn’t have to say ‘yes’. We pray that as Mary’s ‘yes’ brought forth the Saviour of the world, so we too will have the courage and wisdom to say ‘yes’ to God’s plan in our lives.

Walking through Lent with Pope Francis

Our Lent groups have got off to a good start and it’s not too late to join in. If you couldn’t make it last week, please look again at the updated list of times and places and see if there is one you can get to. Other ideas during Lent During Lent as well as our Walking through Lent meetings we have daily Adoration every  morning after the 9 o clock Mass or Service along with the Rosary, why not try to join in? Alternatively you could join in with the Stations of the Cross each Friday during Lent at 2.30pm . Everyone is very welcome.

Thought for the day

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfil it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Life is life, fight for it.” — Mother Teresa
