Cn Bennie's Gospel and homily 20-3-20

Permalink
Dear Parsihioners of St Peter's,


I was kindly given a video camera by Julie Morrey recently and used it to take a test video (unbeknown to Cn Bennie) from the very from the back of the church. Thinking he may like to make the occasional contact with his flock whilst public services of mass are ceased. But of course would have deleted this had it not been with Cn Bennie. 
I didn't think the sound would be any good but it turned out better than I expected. The video is of Cn Bennie's last public gospel and homily taken on Friday 20th March at St Peters. I producer this shortened version that Cn Bennie would like to be shared. 

I plan to do another this Sunday but move the tripod Close and reduce the height of the Lecture so we can get a better view and hopefully clearer sound. Then again  on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday sessions.





So please expect more to follow.

God Bless,

Alban

Come - Join St Peter’s Lent Faith Sharing Course - “Let it be”

D94673E2B43344599A74D35FE95337BFFind out more about Our Lady in preparation for the re-dedication of England as the Dowry of Mary on 29th March 2020. 

As this is an exceptional year for Christians in England and Our Lady,  our parish will re-run the CaFE “Let it be” five-session course over five Wednesdays in Lent. The course gives us a much deeper understanding of Mary from her Immaculate Conception through to her being crowned “Queen of Heaven”; and of course why she is so honoured and blessed with so many titles (well in excess of 50) including “Protector of Christians”. 

This inspiring course involves engaging video sessions that will explore Our Lady, past & present. 
Mary is arguably the greatest Lady ever; - chosen by God, the First and Perfect disciple, Mother of the Church, Queen of Heaven and an advocate to God for all Christians. Mary is the perfect model for us to follow;  her example will help us become ever closer to her son and our saviour Lord Jesus Christ.

Each person attending will be need a course book that links to the video sessions and will help you appreciate Mary’s significance to your personal faith journey. The book includes prayers and reflections to do throughout the week at home/work and if embraced will make your Lent truly devout.

Good Friday Walk of Witness

Permalink
From Neil Spencer:

There will be a Walk of Witness on Good Friday: we will assemble at 10:30 a.m. at the Trinity Methodist Church, setting off at 10:45. We will walk to the Market Square for a service at 11:00 followed with drinks and hot cross buns.

It's likely still to be cold, so wrap up warmly, but it will be worth it to witness to our brothers and sisters in Biggleswade on this holiest of days.

Palm Sunday

Permalink
My Dear Brothers & Sisters,

Palm Sunday! In the minds of many, more memorable than Easter Sunday…the Day of Resurrection. Perhaps we can identify more with the waving of palm branches, Jesus riding on a donkey…the sound of Hosannas, than we can with the empty tomb – the uncertainty of the resurrection, daring to believe. We like the familiar, the comfortable. This week we are being led where we would rather not go….through death.

But when we awake, we will awake to the sight of God’s glory….and then our hosannas will become another song. A song that is the song of the Easter people. In the meantime let us watch and pray.

Have a good week.
Fr. Richard

Lent Approaches

Permalink
Dear All,

This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. Masses with distribution of the ashes will take place at 9:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

A garment of sack cloth and a covering of ashes is in Jewish tradition a sign of repentance and penance for wrong done.

Lent for the Christian is a time of penitence and renewal leading us to the great feast of Easter, the most important feast in the Church’s year.

LENT is the Old English word for SPRINGTIME. In America AUTUMN is known as The Fall (the season of the falling of the leaves). LENT is the season of the LEN(g)T(hening) of the days. It is an interesting aspect of the season of Lent. For us then LENT is a springtime for our faith, a time of renewal.

Spring cleaning is undergone wearing a Pinnie, using Flash, and various Aides de nettoyer.

Lenten Renewal is helped by Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving.

Yours,
Fr. Richard
