Thursday Mornings in Lent

from the 15th February, 7:30am, St Catherine’s Chapel

Each Thursday morning, beginning on the 15th February, the Eucharist will be celebrated in St Catherine’s Chapel according to the Book of Common Prayer. The service begins at 7:30am, and getting up early (in the dark) may seem like an inconvenience, but it is good discipline and an opportunity to be with Jesus, under the form of bread and wine, in a quiet and reflective setting. A light breakfast will be available after the service.
