This Lent, beginning Ash Wednesday, we would like to invite you to come and pray the Rosary together as a community. We will be praying the Rosary daily at 8am on and then on Fridays we will have an additional Rosary at 6:30pm. This will be followed by Stations of the Cross. All the prayers you need will be displayed on a shared screen so you can follow along.
Stations of the Cross To help us prepare for Easter we will gather on Zoom at 7pm every Friday in Lent to journey through the Stations of the Cross. We will have a time of prayer and reflection with each station. If you haven’t participated in the Stations of the Cross before please don’t worry. We will have all the prayers on the screen so you can easily follow along.
All are welcome and you can even join without your camera on. We would love to have you come pray with us.
The Zoom log-in details for both the Holy Rosary and the Stations of the Cross (which is the same every week) are:https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83315046319?pwd=Vnd4Y3VGNDBjcTNaZkczRUkyOWxlZz09

A note from Bishop David
Dear Fr Wayne,
It was truly encouraging to hear of the wonderful resource being put together by your parishioners, to encourage everyone to pray the Holy Rosary daily at 8.00am and on Fridays at 6.30pm. Also, the Stations of the Cross each Friday at 7.00pm. Blessed Carlo Acutis, recently beatified, was born in London and died in Italy at the young age of 15. He described the Rosary as the shortest stairway to heaven. I simply want to thank your parishioners for this initiative and to encourage as many as possible to take part in this exercise of communion and mission. Let us remember, when we pray together even virtually, this is a powerful sign of our fellowship together in Christ. It is also one of the most principal ways we can live out our core to be missionary disciples. And if I may be bold, please keep me and my ministry in your prayers too.
Yours devotedly in Christ,
Rt Revd Dr David J Oakley
Bishop of Northampton
