In church

Unless otherwise indicated, these services take place at St. Paul's.

Notices

After Sunday Mass - there is tea and coffee in the hall, please stay if you can.

Evensong - please note there is no evening service today (Sunday 25 February).

Prayer (sick/departed) list - The list is by the “Venerable Bede” window. Please update the names on it. During the week the list is on the Lady Chapel altar—please feel free to amend the list during the week as well.

Lenten Group - Every Thursday during Lent at 4pm. All are welcome. We will explore the relics of the Passion through history and art and how they help our Lenten discipline and Christian life.

Lenten discipline - Following the example and teaching of the Saviour, Lent is a time of fasting and abstinence. The current discipline is very simple and perhaps too light… fast and abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, abstinence on Fridays of the Lent.

We are all encouraged to do a bit more. The weekly sheet will have all the traditional days of lenten discipline. These are not compulsory anymore but can be a helpful guide to our own lenten discipline. Fasting means: one full meal and two small meals during the day. Abstinence means no meat. Partial abstinence means meat only at the main meal.

Stations of the Cross - Friday at 5pm.

First Friday of the month - dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Silent, informal prayers in front of the Blessed Sacrament 10am-12pm. We pray for our Parish and for the sick and dying. Come and join us, light a candle, say your prayers. All are welcome to arrive and to leave when they can.

Cell meeting - this coming Saturday (2 March) after the Holy Rosary. Tea and cake are served; all are welcome!

Empty tablet foils - As DCH has stopped collecting them (they used to do it for charitable purposes) please do not bring them to the church for the time being. If there is any change, we will let you know. Thank you.

Forthcoming Fundraising Events - please see the poster on the notice board. Full details of each event will be advertised in the weekly sheet and on posters nearer the dates each event is due to take place.

Jumble Sale and Coffee Morning - Saturday 16 March in the hall 11am-12.30pm. Tea and coffee available. Poster displayed on the notice board and display posters available on the table at the north door.

Easter Spring Hamper - We are asking for donations to the hamper such as chocolate, gardening items and spring-themed items. Thank you to those who have already given. The draw will take place on Easter Sunday 31 March after Mass during coffee. The hamper will be displayed every Sunday once we fill the basket. If we have plenty of donations, we will make up additional prizes. Poster on notice board.
