Notices for Sunday 14th February

This Sunday

  • HomeChurch resources for Online Worship will be available from Sunday morning.
  • Celebrating love… St. Valentine’s Day (14th February) is a time when we traditionally think of love.  As we are still restricted in our social interactions we have gathered up a few photos of couples from St. Catherine’s – some on their wedding day, some just young and in love. Who can you recognise?
    The link will go live on the HomeChurch page on Sunday.
  • Compline – Join us on zoom at 21:00 for a short reflective service (code from the Chaplain)
