OVER 55? – FANCY A TRIP TO THE PICTURES? Every Tuesday and Thursday Wimbledon Odeon has special daytime Silver Screenings for the over-55s. It costs £3 and we believe that even includes a cup of tea and a biscuit! The SVP parish group would like to organise a Parish outing to try this out. If it proves popular, it could be a regular event. We will buy the tickets to get to sit together, and make the arrangements for getting there, or meeting in the foyer, as you prefer. We will advertise the films as we get to know what is being screened. We are starting with the ‘new’ version of ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ on Thursday 1 March at 2pm. Do you think you might be interested? If so, just have a word with any SVP member you know, or contact Michael Jones, or Ann Stephenson on 07880 683 530.

OUR ARCHBISHOP HAS WRITTEN TO US FOR LENT:
This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday when we begin the Season of Lent. Masses will speak to us of the need for prayer, of fasting, and almsgiving. We might be forgiven for feeling a little dispirited and despondent at the prospect: First a day of fasting and abstinence, then six weeks of penance to come! So why not try this during Lent at the beginning of each day. Spend a few minutes in quiet, silent prayer, as individuals or as families, responding to God’s request to us through the psalmist in Psalm 45:
- “Be still and know that I am God”, and in Psalm 37:
- “Be still before the Lord and wait in patience.”
These few minutes of silent prayer can be divided into three little petitions: “Lord open my ears that I may hear; open my eyes that I may see; open my heart and rekindle within it the gift of the Holy Spirit, the fire of your love.” What will we be asking for?

GLUTEN FREE hosts are available at each Mass in a pyx beside Fr. Anthony.

NEEDED:
- Welcomers for all Masses.
- Someone to help with Baptism preparations.
COULD BE YOU.
