Parish News for the 6th Week of Easter

May 11, 2023 by James Elston in Weekly News

This Sunday we celebrate our Patronal Festival.

This year S.Pancras Day falls on Friday and so it will be transferred to Sunday morning. In the Gospel reading Jesus promises the gift of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit that at Pentecost creates the church. The same Spirit inspired the boy martyr Pancras in the 4th Century and continues to call, challenge and comfort us in the life of the church.
