Pastoral Notes 18th March, 2018

PASSIONTIDE

This weekend we will find the statues and pictures in St Edward’s covered in purple drapes, so that some of the colour and sparkle of the church is hidden as we begin to contemplate the suffering of Jesus and walk with Him. We have a quiet day on Thursday this week, when you can pop into church and pray before the Blessed Sacrament exposed, praying for our own intentions and for one another. There is an opportunity for individual confession at the evening (7.30pm) service as on every Saturday or by arrangement individually. Like the story of the prodigal son, this has to be a deeply joyful season, as the father celebrates as he welcomes his son whatever his inadequate words!
