St Martin’s Youth Group
Our next meeting will be 18th February and it is hoped we will have our Enrolment Mass at 10am on Sunday 25th February. We look forward to seeing you there. For enquiries, please see Jennifer Gorman.
 
Lenten Reflections in St Martin’s
This we hope to run a series of reflections on the Stations of the Cross. These will allow us to consider each station in detail, reflect on Scripture and apply the experience of Jesus to our lives. Each session will last approximately 1 hour and will look at 2or 3 stations each week. This is not the same as praying the stations as we do in the Church but a prayerful meditation on Christ’s journey, making it relevant to today’s world and our busy lives. This will take place on Monday evenings in the church hall at 7pm during Lent. Please see the poster in the porch for further details or speak to Jennifer Gorman.
