Newsletter for March 2019 from the Editor

Dear Friends 

The year marches on, as time and tide wait for no man, and we have reached the season leading up to Easter, the 40 days ….. is that correct?....... of Lent. Ash Wednesday is the 6th and so Shrove Tuesday must be the 5th which means pancakes!!! But not at Holy Ascension courtesy of Mothers’ Union, well not this year at least. So break out the recipe book – you’ll have to make your own! Once you’ve eaten your fill on those, it’s time to do some preparation for Easter.

And I don’t mean diet so as to prepare for chocolate!

Here are some details of the Lent Courses being held this year. There is one in the afternoon and one in the evening, both on a Tuesday beginning on March 12th.

‘Daring to see God now’: 2019 York Lent Course

Lent Course at Limestone View, 2.30 – 3.30pm (Tuesdays 12,19,26 March, 2,9 April)

Art and Faith: A glimpse of the Sacred

CTISAD Lent Course at St John’s Methodist Church 7.30 – 9pm (Tuesdays 12,19,26 March, 2,9,16 April)

There are several sets of Lent Readings / Lent Reflections, some on line, some on paper, all readily available to help us prepare day by day. Find a quiet moment each day, call it “Lent time” and do a little reading each day. What’s more, you won’t have to give it back: it’s yours for keeps. Use it well!

The 3-Parishes Diary is attached below.  This has full details of our services and events this month.
