Chaplain’s Musings for 9th April

What does Holy Week mean to you?
Which of its days are most meaningful to you and why?


we pray this week for ourselves and those who are dear to us

and if we want to – also in the context of our Lenten journey and as we draw closer to Holy Week


we pray for all who work for Peace in our world

Thank you to those who stood for election on Sunday. The new council will meet for the first time on Sunday 28th April.
If you were not able to make the ACM but would like to receive a copy of the annual report and budget details please e-mail
once again two things this week:
– firstly a big Thank You to all who give regularly or at all
– secondly there are now hard copy forms available as well as online forms for those who want to switch to ‘Planned Giving’

finally too an appeal to anyone who has either experience or a passion for fundraising and grant application to join our finance team – you can email them on

will remain the same throughout Lent:

we welcome those new among us and pray they will soon feel at home at St Catherine’s
there were at least three sets of new faces in church yesterday and it is impressive how our Welcome Team aka the three wise men looked after them but it is for all of us to keep an eye out to see if anyone is struggling to find their way in the black book ………… or needing to be introduced to people over coffee

our Chaplaincy Safeguarding Officer is Katy Kefferpütz who can be contacted at should you have any queries or concerns or feedback

Chaplain – every Monday: 14.30 – 16.00 and every Saturday: 11.00 – 12.30
If I am not there at these times there will be a very good reason !
Chaplaincy Administrator aka the lovely Lauris – every Thursday: 10.00 – 12.00
I am also at the Centre at other times so feel free to drop in – no appointment needed !
Or DO make an appointment if that more suits your needs.
