Fifth Sunday in Lent: Passion Sunday (17/3)

On the Fifth Sunday of Lent (17/3), which is also Passion Sunday, we begin to prepare for Holy Week and consider the ‘passio’, or suffering, of Christ, who poured out his love for us upon the cross.

This week, we’ll celebrate Holy Communion at both 9am and 10.30am with Revd Alan Moss leading and presiding, and Rob Duddridge, our licensed lay minister, preaching. We’ll also have supervised children’s groups at 10.30am, as well as a Baby Lounge in the South Vestry for parents/ carers to come and go as needed.

Our lectionary readings for the Fifth Sunday in Lent are Jeremiah 31:31-34 and John 12:20-33 – a moving passage in which Jesus predicts his death and resurrection.

For those unable to join us in person, we’ll livestream the 10.30am service to our Facebook page.

We hope to see you this Sunday at St Mary’s!
