MASSES FOR HOLY WEEK & EASTER
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 2015 – EASTER SUNDAY
The Year 3 children in St Christopher’s RC Primary School and a smaller number of Catholic children in local non-Catholic schools will make their First Holy Communion all together at the 11.00am Mass on Easter Sunday. Parents and guardians are encouraged to bring the children to the Holy Week services so they can participate in them as part of the parish community gathered to celebrate the great mysteries of our faith. Due to the large numbers expected to be at the First Communion Mass on Easter Sunday, could I ask that parishioners who normally come to the 11.00am Mass please consider coming to the Easter Vigil Mass or the earlier Mass on Easter Sunday instead? This will help to ease congestion in the church and also make it easier for car parking arrangements. Thank you.
Parish Quiz Night – Thank You
A big thank you to everyone who supported the quiz night either by donating
prizes, buying and selling tickets, making a cash donation, or by helping on
the night. You all helped to raise £837 for the building fund.
It was a sell-out occasion with twenty teams taking part, and it was
generally agreed that a great time was had by all.
Photos from the night are available in the Gallery section of the website.
Another quiz night will be held at a future date in the new Christopher
Stations of the Cross for Lent
Stations of the Cross will take place in church on Fridays at 7.30pm and Sundays at 3.00pm during the season of Lent. Please come to this moving traditional devotion and remember to pray for all who suffer in any way in our world today.
For any parishioners who are unable to come to the Stations of the Cross on either Fridays or Sundays, a reflection can be accessed here.
Soup Lunches in Lent
There will be portions of soup available every Friday in Lent (except March 6th which is Women’s World Day of Prayer) at the 12 noon Mass. Portions of soup will be available in containers and we ask for a donation for CAFOD. This year every pound raised for CAFOD during Lent will be matched by the Government. It is a great opportunity for us to show solidarity with the poor. We ask that you return your empty containers for recycling.
