Holy Week - With ongoing restrictions we need to still be careful how we mind each other during the various services of Holy Week. With that in mind, we will try and stay true to how we traditionally celebrate during this most holy week. However, please bear with us as some things will be different and in accordance with our Covid risk assessment. A full list of Holy Week can be found online or on a flyer at the back of the church on on the sidebar here. Fr Phelim will be preaching this Holy Week each evening and for the major ceremonies. Planning meeting this evening at 7pm on zoom.
This week’s services and next Sunday - Reserve your seat at St Saviour’s mass via Liz on 07718918846.
Weekday Services - Please note morning masses will not take place this week because of the evening masses for Holy Week. Good Friday we will have stations in each church (led by our ordinands) and this will involve staying in our seats whilst the stations will be prayed using projector and screen. No weekday services will take place during Easter week and will resume on Monday 12 April.
South Cardiff Ministry Area - The group of treasurers from the churches of the MA met this week to once again voice some concerns and questions surround how we will work together financially as a ministry area. It was a very positive meeting and we look forward to feeding back on this at the first meeting of our steering group which meets after Easter on Wed 14th April on Zoom. Covid Risks Update - Our risk assessment states people must adhere to social distancing and so go straight to their chair and at the end of the service leave orderly. Once outside, catch ups and some fellowship may be possible because due to a lower chance of the coronavirus spreading. Lent Course - With the growth of online worship and formation there are many Lent courses and retreats available for people to follow and pray. There are a list of these available to choose from on our website. We will follow our pattern from last year and explore an Easter Course or Book Group and hopefully restrictions will have been eased to allow us to do this in person by then. 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. Today’s Music: Ride on, Ride on in Majesty. My song is love unknown. My Lord what love is this. And can it be? Please note, congregational singing is still not allowed under current restrictions. Faith QI - Next meets after Easter at 7pm on Wednesday 21 April 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. The next topic will be ‘God and the Pandemic’.
Here can be a found a copy of the news items of events and services taking place in each of our churches. Sometimes there is overlap (baptisms, visiting the sick, pilgrimages etc) but mostly events are pertain mostly to one place.
