SCIAF Wee Box Appeal

If you haven’t already done so, please pick up a SCIAF “Wee Box” from the back of the Church on your way out today to help with Lenten almsgiving. The UK Government has pledged to match all donations received through the Wee Box Appeal this year, so please do take one home and fill it up during Lent.

Stations of the Cross

Stations of the Cross

Stations of the Cross

It is a good and pious tradition to pray the Stations of the Cross during Lent. This year we will have Stations every Thursday evening at 7pm led by the prayer group. They will also be celebrated at the Cathedral on Tuesdays at 7pm and after 12.45pm Mass on Fridays.

The Stations are a beautiful devotion – please think about making the commitment to come every week and especially those of you with children why not think about introducing your children to this lovely form of prayer this Lent?
