I hope that, for you, Lent is going well. Already we are in the second week! Please do look around for Villages’ Lent Courses and Hunger/ Frugal Lunches going on.

This Monday our own Course begins. It will run for 5 Mondays. It is based on Our Lady and how she carried out God’s will and how she can help us do just this.

Looking ahead, we will all be affected by the Parish having to share me with Shefford – especially in Holy Week. I am hoping that parishioners at both St Francis and here can share my services during Holy Week.

I hope to do the Holy Thursday Mass at Shefford (8.00pm) plus Watching until Midnight. Then I hope to do the Easter Vigil here at St Peter’s (8.00pm Saturday). Good Friday is easy because Deacon Peter Hyde can lead the Afternoon Liturgy (3pm) at Shefford while I am leading here at St Peter’s (3.00pm).

Lent is the special Season when the Church gives us the opportunity to deepen our Catholic Faith. It is a season of amazing possibilities for grace.

We had an excellent start to Lent with a full Church for the Ash Wednesday Mass. Deo Gratias. Well done everyone who was able to make it………. on a cold and miserable evening.

This year the annual Lenten Course is on the role that Our Lady plays in the life of the Catholic. It runs on Monday evenings. Coming along will not only enlighten you but also it will help you meet other people and to discuss with them your Faith.

And do not forget that Ecumenically there are Lenten Meetings. Going along to these ecumenical events would be a great way of sharing with your fellow Christians.

Lent is the special Season when the Church gives us the opportunity to deepen our Catholic Faith. It begins on Wednesday with Mass and Ashes at 7.30 p.m.

I do hope and pray that you will use this time of extra Grace to get to know God better and to get to deepen your Faith. On Wednesday we are asked to abstain from meat and meat products.

Also we are asked to fast on Wednesday - one main meal and 2 light meals.

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

Led through 5 weeks of engaging video sessions, this Inspiring course 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 given a free 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.

The course is open to all so why not come and check out Session 1; on Monday 26th February at 7:15pm and bring a friend if you like....

To reserve your free book register on line at

Thank you for your patience.

Since you became a Parish without a resident priest many things have had to change. I thank all of you for your patience.

An especial thank you who regularly used the 8.00am as your weekly Mass. Also thank you for accepting the change of timing for our main Family Mass from 10.30 to 11a.m.
