Parish News for the 2nd Week of Lent

March 2, 2023 by James Elston in Weekly News

This Sunday is the Second in Lent.  In the Gospel reading, Jesus takes three of his disciples on to the mountain top and he is transfigured before their eyes. His garments turn brilliant white and his face shines like the sun. As Jesus makes his way to his Passion and Death in Jerusalem we glimpse that he is also Divine and that his Death and Resurrection will save the world. Click here for the scripture readings.  Thank you to Fr. Thomas Cotterill, our guest preacher, (and former Pastoral Assistant) for being with us.
