Lent in the Parish of Our Lady of Grace & St Edward Church
People of all ages and nationalities, married and single, with children and without, have found a spiritual home here. Together we not only seek to deepen our knowledge and love of God but we also reach out in care and friendship to one another: within the parish, in the local area and further afield. In doing so, we have taken to heart Pope Francis’s call for us to be ‘missionary disciples’ by preaching the Gospel through what we say and do - and by being proactive in seeking out those whose lives are poor, or impoverished, in one way or another.

Lent News Flash: Aspects of Prayer series; Lent lunches and Family project
There are many events and projects taking place during Lent and in the build-up to Holy Week. For our Lenten Project, we shall be supporting CAFOD in its efforts to help refugees from Syria. Lent lunches will take place every Friday, from February 20. The parish is coming together to consult on the gift of marriage and family life, and the challenges faced in the contemporary world. And we are hosting a series of events each Tuesday evening, focused on Aspects of Prayer. For all details, please see our Lent leaflet.
And there's a special Lent leaflet for the children of the parish. Click here to get your own copy!
