LiFT 7th April

Good evening my friends,

How are you all this evening?

It’s been a long day so I’ll keep it brief tonight – some service details for you, and a couple of other bits and bobs!

This Sunday is Palm Sunday and the start of Holy Week. If you have the time I highly recommend to you that you do more than just the Sundays if at all possible. There are some lovely services going on across the whole group and wider. Why not try something new or different?

For example, on Tuesday at 11am is the Chrism Mass in the cathedral. This is a very special service led by the bishop in which all the priests renew their vows, and the holy oils for baptism and healing are blessed for the coming year. You are all very welcome to that and there is a buffet lunch afterwards. Please let me know if you are coming and I’ll make sure they have your name down for lunch 🙂

Maundy Thursday will bring with it all that you might expect, followed by Good Friday, which offers us a whole host of services and styles, including the Ecumenical Walk of Witness around Usk at 10.30am.

Please do then join us at the top of the Blorenge at 6am on Easter Morning, to welcome the sunrise and celebrate the first service of Easter. I’m told there isn’t too much of a walk if we park at Foxhunters Car Park!!

We will of course be having Compline on SUnday evening and Morning Prayer on Monday morning, and I will be doing my speed awareness course on Monday afternoon! I’m trying to keep that quiet 🙂

Oh and, for very good reason I will be working Friday this week so will be off on Saturday instead.
I’m really sorry there’s no chatty bit tonight – I’m all chatted out!! 

I hope you have a good weekend, I shall see you soon. be in touch if you have any queries.
With love,
Sally xxxx
