An extended Meditation on the Stations of the Cross will take place on Friday March 9th at 7pm. A great way to prepare for Holy Week


Ecumenical Bible Study Group 

The group began as a joint venture between the neighbouring churches of St George and St Lawrence but is open to everyone.  We meet several times a year for short courses of about six weeks to study aspects of the Bible or the Faith.

During Lent we are looking at the biblical foundations of the 'Our Father.'  This prayer has been defined as the 'summary of the whole gospel' while Pope Francis said recently that a Christian is someone who says the Our Father daily.  We are studying the sources on which Jesus may have drawn when he answered the disciples' request for a prayer and references elsewhere in the gospels.

We meet at 7pm on the Thursdays of Lent at the Corpus Christi Sisters' house, 110 Lawrence Street.  There are two remaining sessions: Thursday 15 and Thursday 22 March.  Each session is self-contained so do come if you can.  Please bring a Bible, any version.  We end at 8pm with Compline.
