MESSAGE FROM FATHER PHIL
One of the joys of last year was connecting again with brother James and the SSJE (Society of St John the Evangelist) community in America. A little bit of our history connecting up with us again. So I was delighted when I discovered that they are offering a course called “Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John” for Lent this year. We have been sent 100 copies of the booklet which has some bible verses/reflections for everyday in Lent and more importantly some space for you to write down your thoughts. The process of writing down our thoughts about our life with God in prayer can make us feel quite nervous and self-conscious but it can also be a good way of purposefully reflecting on our spiritual journey. So this Lent I invite you all to take a “Meeting Jesus” booklet but also to come along to the sessions we are running on Tuesday evenings about the SSJE course. As usual there are a variety of other offerings for Lent detailed in this booklet. It would be lovely to see people at the Stations of the Cross on Monday evenings. We will also have a daily celebration of the Eucharist (Monday-Friday). I hope you may feel that you can commit to coming along to a weekday Eucharist during Lent or maybe even two. Please also come and support the other offerings shown below. Lent can be a real springtime for the soul, a fresh opportunity to engage with the life of faith, may it be so for us and for our community.
