Parish News for the 5th Week in Lent

March 14, 2024 by Churchwardens in Weekly News

This Sunday is Passion Sunday. As we approach Easter, we walk with Jesus in his journey to the Cross. The readings are among the most important texts of the Scriptures. Jesus tells us that his coming passion is like a wheat grain falling on the ground. It dies and it is only a single grain, but if it dies it yields a rich harvest.
