MOTHERING SUNDAY POSIES
Padstow:- On Saturday, 5th March at 2 pm, the St Petroc’s Flower Team will be meeting in the Church Rooms to make posies and we would welcome any help either in making the posies or a donation of small flowers or suitable foliage. A bucket for donations of flowers or foliage will be placed in the flower corner in Church a few days before Saturday, 5th March. Please do come along if you can, we usually make about 70 posies (help can
always be given). It is always an enjoyable afternoon and nice to have a cup of tea and chat at the same time! Rita Phillips (tel: 521600)
Trevone:- Could the Flower Team gather at the Old Farmhouse at 2.30 p.m. on Saturday, March 5th to make up posies for Mothering Sunday. Donations of flowers and small greenery would be much appreciated and these can be left at the Old Farmhouse. Many thanks, Sue Hollingsworth (520788)
WE WAIT WITH BATED BREATH!!
Early in March the final decision will be made by The Heritage Lottery Fund whether or not we receive the major grant to enable us to do all the work necessary on the tower.
We are all hoping and praying that we will be successful as it will mean that the much needed work can begin in 2016.
L.H.W.E. – What does it stand for?
For our services at this time of the year we have a brilliant book called LENT, HOLY WEEK AND EASTER which is a wonderful resource for all the special services and ceremonies as we run up to Easter. What is so special about Lent, Holy Week and Easter?
Lent is special because it is the time of year that we look at ourselves and try to improve our spiritual life.
Holy week is special because we are following Jesus on his journey though his last supper with his most trusted followers; his trials, mockings and beatings; his journey to the Cross and his death.
Easter is special because it is the day Jesus beat Sin and death and the day we shout “Alleluia, Christ is Risen”. He is back with us and promising us all the gift of eternal life.
Why not be with us as we journey. Lent continues through March and culminates with Easter Day on Sunday March 27th. Along the way there is Mothering Sunday on March 6th (Also known as “Refreshment Sunday”) A break from the rigours of Lent and a day to show our appreciation for our mothers.
On March 13th we move into Passion-tide when we focus on the suffering of Jesus for us.
Holy Week begins on Sunday March 20th with Palm Sunday when we re-enact the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem – the day when everyone in the congregation receives a blessed Palm Cross to take home.
On Maundy Thursday (24th) we remember Jesus in the Upper Room at the Last Supper and “Watch” with him in the garden. O
n Good Friday (25th) We have the Ecumenical Procession of Witness through the town and finishing on the Quay. We start outside Prideaux Place main gate (Opposite the former Catholic Church) at 12 noon.
Easter Day (27th) we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead – the heart of our Christian belief.
