March 2019:

 

 These are the suggested hymns for the month of March, selected from the Southwark Diocese Music Planner. We will rehearse on Mondays and depending on rehearsals and availability of musicians will then choose the repertoire, therefore the hymn numbers may be subject to change.

40 days of Lent

 

 

The SEASON of LENT
     
    


Penitence is an essential part of the Christian life, for none of us can measure Ash Wednesdayup to the tremendous vocation that is ours as Christians. We are in constant need of the mercy and forgiveness of God. Today we express this by taking part in an impressive corporate act of penitence and reconciliation, beseeching God for the grace to use with profit the ‘favourable time’ of preparation for the celebration of Christ’s Passover feast.

The Lenten season allows us to focus on the Penitential Rite and reflect on God’s mercy, as we do not sing or intone the Gloria or Alleluia.
