These two important ministries in the Church require training from time to time.
We have arranged for two separate sessions, on two Saturday mornings, from
10.30am-12.30pm to facilitate this. Father Adrian will lead the sessions.

The date for Readers is 12th March, for Ministers 2nd April.



During Lent we will have 40 hours of continuous prayer and adoration of the
Blessed Sacrament from 5pm on Thursday 7th April to 10am on Saturday 9th April.
This is an ancient Catholic devotion providing an opportunity to pray and reflect
in silence.

The exposed Blessed Sacrament can never be left alone – at least two
people should always be present. A list for names is available in the porch.
