+ We have a new Altar Crucifix, given to the parish by Bob Trent in loving memory of his mentor, Jim Cremins. The Crucifix is solid brass and over 100 years old and it has ben restored and polished. The Cross will be on the Altar for the first time during the Vigil of the Holy Hour on Thursday & Good Friday albeit veiled for those solemn liturgies.
+ The Monday Morning Bible Study will meet next on Monday, April 6.The class is working through 40 Minute Bible Study Series by Precept entitled “The Essentials of Effective Prayer”, by Kay Arthur and David and BJ Lawson. As we celebrate our Lord’s resurrection on Easter Sunday, we take the time during Lent & Holy Week to examine ourselves and ask the Lord, as did David in Psalm 139:23-24, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.” Going back to the essentials of our prayer life is key to our preparation for Jesus’ Passion and His glorious resurrection. The study will last six weeks. For further information contact Priscilla King at [email protected].
