AUTUMN EMBER DAY
The first Friday of March is designated “Autumn Ember Day” in the Australian liturgical calendar. In 2008 the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference decided that the Australian Church should observe the first Fridays of Autumn and Spring (March and September) each year as special days of prayer and penance. The aim of Ember Days is to connect our prayers for favourable weather and good harvests with our responsibility to care for the earth as stewards of the world’s resources. Fasting and abstaining from meat encourage us to be restrained in our exploitation of natural resources. A day of penance ex-presses our solidarity with those who are disadvantaged, especially those who suffer through famine and the inequitable distribution of the world’s goods.

LENT - STATIONS OF THE CROSS
Stations of the Cross will be held every Friday evening during Lent, 7:00pm at Sts Peter & Paul’s Bulimba
LENTEN SCRIPTURE GROUP
The Lenten Scripture Group is meeting Tuesday at 7pm, St Benedict’s Church at East Brisbane. The group this year has increased in numbers and the input from everyone was thoughtful and encouraging. We invite you to come along and join us as part of your journey towards Easter. Even if you can only attend for one or two sessions, you would be very welcome.
WORLD DAY OF PRAYER
will be celebrated at Sts Peter and Paul, Bulimba on Friday 1 March at 10am, followed by morning tea in the Parish Hall. This year the prayers were prepared by a group of ecumenical Christian Palestinian
women in response to the passage from Ephesians 4:1-7. All welcome.
