Good Friday 2nd April - Icon of the Day

A grain of sand I am blown on to a

Clump of heather and I see

Alight large above me a butterfly

With black and orange stripes –

It’s Auntie Maureen aged ninety-four

Smiling down upon me

And she is saying

‘While you were sleeping, Paul, I died.

Isn’t it the most glorious morning?’

‘Maureen Durcan’, by Paul Durcan

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, Jesus, Saviour of the world, we thank you for what you did for us by dying on the cross.


In these unprecedented times, St Mary’s is reaching out and supporting our community in many ways, especially online. But with activities in our buildings greatly restricted, we no longer receive the previous level of financial support from collections at Services, nor from hiring out the church and hall buildings.

If you can help us financially to continue to offer Christ's love to our community in these difficult times, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':

Thank you!
