News for 2nd April

we continue with our series of pictures to reflect on…….

pray for those who serve St Catherine’s in a range of different ways – formally and informally… Might you become one of them?

The Annual Church Meeting will take place immediately after the service. Only those who are listed on the electoral roll are entitled to vote at the meeting. This list will be circulated in the form of a sign in sheet before the meeting. Apologies from those who cannot attend may be added.

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

we pray for all who work to relief the suffering of the recent floods in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi
that governments as well as individuals would be generous
