RITE OF ELECTION - ST GEORGE’S CATHEDRAL.
Our RCIA group were welcomed by Archbishop Peter on Saturday as they took the next step in their Journey in Faith. He called them to the Easter Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.
LENT IS HERE!
Our Lenten Cross is on the Sanctuary and this year as part of our Spirituality of Stewardship we are considering TIME. Your are asked to complete a card to hang on the cross and promise to “spend some quality time with someone each week during Lent”
Prayer Journal. Please take home from Mass your Personal Lent Prayer Journal.Remember to put some time aside each week to write, draw or record in your Lent Prayer Journal.
Here are some other things that YOU can DO over the next 6 weeks to come closer to Jesus by taking part in; that you will benefit from, and that will deepen your personal encounter with Jesus.
DAILY LENTEN REFLECTION

each day from The Southwark Diocesan Stewardship Team. A quick and easy prompt to keep you focussed on your personal journey towards Easter. Just open the following link and subscribe.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS Each Friday evening at 7.30pm there will be a version of the Stations of the Cross led by a different parish group.
The Confirmation Group will be leading the Stations of the Cross this Friday at 7.30pm. The following Friday the SVP Group will lead
Friday evening Mass at 8pm Particularly or those who are working during the week and want to make a personal effort.
THE WHY COURSE
Holy Cross is beginning a series of talks and courses which over the next few years for anyone who wants to find out more about our Catholic Faith. Beginning this Lent we will explore some of the 'Big Questions' about God, Jesus and the Church. Thursdays 1st March 'Why God?', 8th March, 'Why Jesus?' and 22nd March, 'Why the Church?' 7:30pm in Hartley Hall. For further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
A series of 4 presentations on Mary the Mother of God Wednesdays 28th Feb, 7th, 14th and 21st March 7.30pm-8.30pm.
Who was Mary of Nazareth? Why was she chosen to be the mother of God? How did her “YES” change the world? Where is Mary now and what is she doing? How can Mary help us today? These are some of the questions raised in the presentations.
Join us from 7pm for a cup of tea and meet other parishioners.
Will be of particular interest to those going to Lourdes on the Parish Pilgrimage in September
GOSPEL REFLECTION FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT IN today’s Gospel, Jesus urges his listeners to do two things: to believe in the Good News and to repent. The steward is called to repent: to acquire an openness to begin anew, to change existing attitudes and habits, and to act with faith in the Gospel. In this season of Lent, now is the time to ask ourselves whether or not we truly believe in the Gospel; and if we do, to what extent are we willing to change our prevailing habits and be more faithful to the Gospel?
Each week of Lent there will be a cartoon and a short text based on the Gospel reading for that week.
What is God saying to you?
What are your priorities going to be?
