Thursday 18th March – Icon of the Day
‘Enter eagerly into the treasure house that is within you, and you will see the things that are in heaven – for there is but one single entry to them both. The ladder that leads to the Kingdom is hidden within your soul, and there you will find the ladder by which to ascend.’
Saint Isaak of Syria (613 - 700 AD)

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, we pray for those who harm others through abuse and violence and for those who suffer the results.
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':
