We warmly welcome all who have come to worship the Lord on this Fifth Sunday of Lent.  We are now halfway to the glorious feast of the Resurrection. As designated by the Church the whole period of Lent including Holy Week, is intended to be one of self-discipline, a time of reflection, spiritual discipline, self-examination all in preparation for the glorious and joyful Resurrection of our Lord.  

Following church services you are invited to Fellowship Hour hosted by Cynthia Panthier on behalf of the Women's Guild.

Prayers for the Sick 

During the singing of Der Voghormia - Page 45 of the Divine Liturgy Book, we pray for peace and for the sick. Let us remember and ask God's Blessings for our parishioners, who are ill at home, hospital or nurising home.
