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
Purple Purple or violet is the prescribed liturgical colour for Lent. It should be a sombre blue-violet shade in contrast to the lighter purple of Advent. The aim is to visually evoke a mood of simplicity and austerity, so adding symbols to purple hangings is unnecessary and distracting. The colour on it’s own is the symbol. Some may remember when the 4th Sunday of Lent was called Laetare (Rejoice) Sunday and rose coloured vestments were worn. It was one day of rejoicing in the middle of the sombre season of Lent. With our present understanding of lent, it makes no sense to differentiate the 4th Sunday. All Sundays are days of festivity in any case!

LENTEN SCRIPTURE GROUP
The Lenten Scripture Group is meeting Tuesday at 7pm, St Benedict’s Church at East Brisbane. Our first group get together last week was well received with an increase in numbers. The input from everyone was thoughtful and encouraging. We invite you to come along. It’s the best hour you’ll spend in the peaceful space which is St. Benedict’s.
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.
