Wishing you a blessed Lent …

Lent course 2018: #LiveLent – Let Your Light Shine!

The Church of England’s Lent course for 2018, entitled#LiveLent – Let Your Light Shine, “takes you on a six week discipleship journey through the Gospel of John, exploring what it means to be a witness. For each day from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day there is a short reading, a pause for reflection and prayer, and an idea for a simple action that will enable the light of Jesus to shine through our everyday lives”. There is also a five-session course for groups. For more info see https://www.churchofengland.org/lent.
Interested in participating? Then you can:
Katy has ordered copies of the accompanying 112-page booklet with all of the readings, prayers and reflections, for those who have requested one. If you’ve missed the order all is not lost. For those that are happy to use an electronic version, all of the materials are also now available on an app specially developed for Lent 2018. This can be downloaded for free from apple.co/2ECqIZC (Apple store) and bit.ly/2BQ8iBt #app #lent (Google Play store).

Flat Hunting – can you help find a home for our chaplain?

I am sure everyone knows by now that our new chaplain, the Revd. Kara Werner, is coming to take over the St. Catherine’s ministry in April. Before she arrives we must find her a flat! We have been looking on all the appropriate websites, have distributed flyers in church, have put her name down with the department at the Oberkirchenrat in Stuttgart which also looks for accomodation, and asked everybody to keep their ears and eyes open for any possible flats. Here are the details once again:

50 to 70 sqm, 2 to 3 rooms, with built-in kitchen (essential), balcony (optional), within the VVS Zone 1 or 2 for easy and reasonably-priced commuting. From 1st March 2018. Up to €1.000,– warm. Our new chaplain is in her mid-fifties, English with good knowledge of German, non-smoker and with no pets.

Should you hear of any flats please contact: flat-hunting@stcatherines-stuttgart.de.
Thank you. Alison
