Ash Wednesday 1 March

Join us for Mass at 7:3opm as we pledge ourselves anew to live for Christ

This will be the Hymn of Sending Out:

                                          The Spirit sends us forth to serve; we go in Jesus’ name                                                                                    to bring glad tidings to the poor, God’s favour to proclaim.
                                       We go to comfort those who mourn and set the burdened free:                                                              where hope is dim, to share a dream and help the blind to see.

                                               We go to be the hands of Christ, to scatter joy like seed                                                                and all our days, to cherish life, to do the loving deed.
                                                Then let us go to serve in peace, the Gospel to proclaim.                                                              God’s Spirit has empowered us; we go in Jesus’ name. 

(may be sung to the Tune ‘Ellacombe’ – with its hint of Easter Promise as Lent begins)
