IN THE PINK Second Sunday of Lent 2021

Issue 576

 Dear friends

You can watch our service from St Mary Magdalene’s on YouTube.

 


Mass for the Second Sunday of Lent






St Peter’s is closed for worship I’m afraid we have to concentrate our resources at St Mary Magdalene’s for the moment. We aim to be back in St Peter’s at Easter, when hopefully people will feel more confident about worshipping in that confined space. Please do join us at St Mary Mags at 9.30 or online.

“Comfort and Courage” Grand Junction is running a series of 21 performances (music and spoken word) which will be streamed from St Mary Mags over the coming month, starting this week. There is a full listing on the Grand Junction website. Parishioners are entitled to 50% discount when you use the code gjfriendcc1. If the cost is still a problem for you, please email Lucy Foster (lucy@grandjunction.org.uk) and we will make sure that you can get access to what you want to see.

Online Lent Course We are collaborating with Little Venice again, as we did in Advent, and producing a series of online Lent talks. This time we have an opportunity for feedback after the talks. The talks go up at noon each Tuesday during Lent, and the feedback sessions will be on Thursdays on Zoom from 6.30 to 7pm.

2nd March Fr Andrew Norwood, “Fare la Bella Figura”; why do the clergy wear special clothes?

9th March Fr Henry, “Pots and Pans”; an explanation of altar, chalice, paten, ciborium, linens, hosts, wine and water.

16th March Fr Gary Bradley, “Do They Make it up as they Go?”; an explanation of service books, missals and lectionaries.

23rd March Fr Ellis Blackmore, “Is it a Closed Shop?”; an explanation of lay ministries at the Mass.

30th March Fr Gary Bradley, “What am I Missing This Week?”; an introduction to the liturgies of Holy Week.

Thursday 1st April Fr Andrew Norwood, “Love, Feet, the Queen and the Royal Mint”; what happened on the first Maundy Thursday.

Good Friday 2nd April a service of Stations of the Cross

Saturday 3rd April Fr Henry, “A Bonfire and a Baptism”; waiting for the Resurrection.

Reading in Lent If you want something worthwhile to read this Lent, I have a couple of suggestions. I shall be reading “Reflections on the Psalms” by C.S.Lewis (the author of the Narnia novels). A more challenging read is “Come be my Light” by Mother Teresa (edited by Brian Kolodiejchuk).

Diocesan Lent Appeal this year is for 3 organisations tackling youth violence in London, XLP, TLG and Redthread. There is a basket in church for your contributions.

Book Club Our next book is “North and South” by Elizabeth Gaskell. We shall be meeting on zoom to talk about it on Wednesday 17th March at 7.30pm. Some of you may remember the BBC adaptation of it some years ago; anyway, it’s a Victorian novel of manageable size! We would love to have more members, and all the books are chosen by the group, so if you come you will get your say about what we read.

Building the new porch on the north side of St Mary Mags is starting on Monday 1st March. This is very good news, as it will free us from the plague of substance-abusers who have been using the north steps for cover. As a result we shall stop using the north door.

Mass is said daily at St Mary Magdalene’s, and we pray for each street in the Benefice by name over the course of three weeks. Mass is still public and will be at 7.30am Monday to Friday this week. Here are the Bible readings for Morning and Evening Prayer for the coming week. Evening Prayer is public, and at 6pm, every day this week.
