Parish News for the 1st Week in Lent

February 15, 2024 by James Elston in Weekly News

This Sunday is the First in Lent.  In the Gospel reading Jesus is tempted in the wilderness. All of us are tempted to wander from the path of love and to be tormented by our own demons. Lent is the time in the church year when we confront these things, but we can only do so in the strength of Christ. Georges who is training to be a priest will preach in Old S.Pancras for the first time. Click here for the scripture readings.
