4th Sunday of Lent.
As we move closer to Holy Week and Easter today’s Gospel gives us a pointer to these events. Jesus will be ‘lifted up’ on the cross, raised to life at the resurrection and ascend to his Father. All this is to reveal God’s love for the world: the cross is a powerful sign of this.
As in previous years all three communities will come together to celebrate the Holy Week liturgies at North Walsham. If you wish to attend you will need to book a place with John Bolger. For those who cannot attend in person we are hoping to introduce live streaming of the Triduum services and this will continue over Easter and beyond. Masses on Easter will be at 9 am (Hoveton and Aylsham) and 11 am at North Walsham. Fr Denys Lloyd has kindly agreed to say the Mass at Hoveton.
If you wish to attend a Sunday Mass you need to book a place with the co- ordinator for each church:
John Bolger at Sacred Heart – 01692 581516 (firstname.lastname@example.org);
Fran Ludden at Aylsham – 07849 602227 (email@example.com);
Richard McGreevy,Hoveton – 01603 738255 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please pray for our sick parishioners: Matt Butler, Derek and Frances Palman, Mary Bell and Mary Carr.
We also pray for Tony Randall, Jean Wood, Kevin Fitzmaurice, Joan Mullane and John Gowing who died recently; and for those whose anniversaries occur this week including: William Lee, Cynthia Shearing, Mary Halliday, Michael Sherry, Reginald Broad, Robert Watson, Davyd Randall, George Threadewell, Michael Yates, Ron Gibbs, Leo Davis and Kathleen (Kay) Pearce.
May they rest in peace.
