LENTEN PREPARATION

LENTEN COURSES  +

For our Parish reflections we are encouraged to follow the ‘Dare to Dream’ programme commended by Bishop Declan.  Each week there will be an on-line reflection accompanied by a video to watch before engaging with the scripture.  This week there is an introductory session.  The reflections and videos appear on the Diocesan Website Please use the link https://cliftondiocese.com/date-to-dream/     Any parishioner who would subsequently like to join as a joint parish group each Friday during Lent and via ZOOM is welcome to do so and you should let Chris Davies or Bridget Durrant know, via one of the parish offices. Phone either Tewkesbury 01684 293 273 or Winchcombe 01242 602412.  The Zoom meetings start on 26th February at 7.00pm

UPDATE ON MASSES IN OUR PARISHES

Even though many churches are closed in our area, we are lucky that Father Tony feels able to continue to serve Mass. Hopefully as more and more parishioners are vaccinated against the virus, our numbers attending will grow.

Anyone who is still unable to leave home and wishes to speak to Father Tony and possibly arrange a home visit is asked to contact him by email at the address shown on the newsletter
