just do it!

For every one of us the term Sacrament of Confession, Penance or Reconciliation brings up many different responses reactions or feelings.  Tragically there are many people who have not experienced the beauty of this sacrament for many years or even decades…

AN INVITATION:

The Holy Week – Easter Sunday journey (from Palm Sunday to Easter morning) is like a retreat in everyday life with the liturgies of the Church helping us to make sense of human griefs hopes joys and anxieties.

This coming Wednesday I’m offering a reflection on this wonderful week helping us all to understand and to appreciate the beauty of these events in the life of Jesus which are the heart of our faith.   FFF Holy Week Easter Poster (pdf)

All Welcome. Invite a friend to come with you.St. Gregory’s, 26 Cotswold Avenue, Bishopdale, Christchurch. 7.30pm – 9.00pm
