Diocesan Prayer Link: We pray for Fr Canon Richard Dwyer, Deacon David Brinn and the parishioners of St. Catherine, Frome and St. Dominic, Mells.

O God of eternal glory, you anointed Jesus your servant to bear our sins,

to encourage the weary, to raise up and restore the fallen.

Keep before our eyes the splendour of the paschal mystery of Christ

and, by our sharing in the passion and resurrection

seal our lives with the victorious sign of his obedience and exaltation,

 We ask this through Christ, our liberator from sin, who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit, holy and mighty God for ever and ever. Amen.

YEAR OF PRAYER: All of us have probably experienced roller coaster days which can cause us to go from a state of great joy into one of despair. As we recall the events of Jesus entering Jerusalem and all that followed on from that euphoric entry, we are invited into the suffering and death of Jesus, to focus on an experience which Jesus freely participated in. This does not mean that it was easy. Suffering by its very nature is painful, whether it be emotional, psychological or physical.  One week from today we will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus but during the week ahead we remember that Jesus continues to suffer in his body, that is in the people who are suffering today, victims of abuse, of injustice, of betrayal and of persecution. As we reflect on this let us pray for these victims that, they too, will rise with the Lord.

THE VALUE OF SILENCE: In this Year of Prayer we really would encourage you on entering the Churches to prepare for Mass by embracing the stillness of silence and the wonder of our God!

EASTER FLOWERS: 2nd collection TODAY will go towards the various beautiful flowers and displays engaging our senses and uplifting our spirits throughout the Triduum.

PRODUCE & REPOSITORY STALLS: Easter goodies galore! Pick up your treats, prezzies and cards after the 10:30am Mass. Produce sold in aid of Orphans In The Wild.

CHRISM MASS: 11am Wednesday 17th April, Clifton Cathedral. Priests, Deacons and lay faithful join the Bishop at this Mass which manifests the unity of the clergy with their Bishop with the renewal of their commitment to service. This is followed by the Blessing of Oils to be used for the Sacraments throughout the year, an ancient tradition from the early church.
