Newsletter for Easter

Hi All

I hope everyone is keeping well and safe as we travel through the Triduum…
We’ve entered the most sacred time of the church year, Christ has washed his disciples feet, the last supper has been held, the watch in the Garden of Gethsemane is over, Christ has been arrested and the long night of trials and torture is ended. In the early hours of this morning Jesus made his long walk to Calvary carrying his cross, and since around 9am he has hung there… through the course of today we will be gathering in our churches to come and stand at the foot of the cross and gaze upon Him who is dying for all of creation, spreading wide his arms in love for each and everyone of us. I do hope you are all able to make it to church today, or at least to set aside some time to contemplate the enormity of todays narrative as we journey towards Easter.

Unfortunately for me, I am not able to join you for these services as I tested positive for Covid yesterday morning so am having to spend the next few days at home. I am lucky though to be part of a great team here in Dyffryn Clwyd and so all the services I would have been doing will still go ahead and I will be with you all in spirit and hopefully be back with you all next week when I’ve recovered.

If like me you can’t make it to church today then we did manage to record the Passion Narratives which were presented in St Peter’s Ruthin on Wednesday and you can watch these online

Attached is the newsletter and reading sheets for this Sunday and a picture I was sent of the Garden of Gethsemane in Llanbedr from nights watch.
