Welcome back to Fr Chris Lee and many thanks for his agreeing to preach and preside for us today. Mothering Sunday - Flowers today will be placed under your seats in advance of the service. They will be blessed before the final hymn.
Next Sunday - Reserve your seat at St Saviour’s mass via Liz on 07718918846.
Covid Precautions - Many thanks for all those who are heeding our covid precautions. As a reminder, once we enter church we go to our places and stay there until the end of the service. At the end of the service we leave quietly through the middle doors. It is only outside where conversations/fellowship is allowable. Recently, many individuals are gathering and catching up before the service starts which is against our risk assessment and if it continues may place our opening for worship at risk. Please help us stay open for the rest of Lent and Holy Week by abiding by our precautions and keeping socially distant from each other. Many thanks again for your continued forbearance, Fr Phelim.
South Cardiff Ministry Area - Steering Group meets on Wed 14 April.
Easter Flowers - Order forms for those wishing to sponsor Easter Floral arrangements will be available from Gwyneth today. Anyone wishing to make a donation towards the flowers/plants for the Altar of Repose and Easter Garden please see Liz.
Lenten Charity - This year we are supporting our neighbours at the ‘Oasis Cafe’ as they work with refugees and asylum seekers. So far over £330 has been raised by all those who attended and supported our two fundraiser Bingo events on zoom. We will continue to collect for this worthy cause during Lent.
Faith QI - Next meets on St Patrick’s day 17 March at 7pm via zoom. Each evening we explore a different topic related to our faith and spirituality - sometimes prayer, sometimes philosophy, sometimes theology. At the heart of it is a desire to understand and deepen our own faith. Lent Course - There are a list of courses and retreats available to choose from on our website. We will follow our pattern from last year and explore an Easter Course or Book Group.
Evensong and Benediction - Tonight at 6:30 pm in St German’s. All are welcome.
Stations of the Cross - Are now available to be played during the season of Lent. Stations are available from St Saviour’s and also St German’s. Many thanks to Brian Williams for his recording of Cesar Franck’s ‘Stations’ for this recording.
Recently Departed - Margaret Underwood RIP
