Vicar/Reader's Monthly Message

Is it me or does Lent seem later this year? Well, it may be because this is the latest it can be, the next time it will be this late is 2030. Blame the moon!

Do you give up something or take something on during Lent? To be frank I don't.

It’s a little like New Year’s resolutions, not many of us keep them. We give things up that we know don't really mean a lot, so why kid ourselves. Easter is upon us, it is our salvation, when we know that Christ over came death and we have the promise of eternal life. After the time of Lent, which for some is a trauma, let us rejoice in the risen Lord and celebrate Him in all His glory

Alleluia, Alleluia.

Christ is risen.
