February News from St. Margaret's Church, Iver Heath

WELCOME TO LENT!

The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 26th, when ashes are imposed on our heads at the Eucharist. The light which the gospel of Christ sheds on the reality of our lives shows us that we are but dust, and to dust we return. But Christ has come to raise us up our destiny of dust to be united with him in the glory of his eternal kingdom. This is why we are called to repent- to turn again to God the Father, and to believe the gospel (Good News) which is God's Son, Jesus Christ. In  the season of Lent those who have wandered from the faith are invited to return, those who are drawn to Christ are prepared for Baptism and Confirmation, and the faithful are invited into a closer relationship with Christ, to a deeper life of prayer and acts of service in his name.

Stan & Sue Smith kindly deliver the crates of donations.   A list of currently needed items is posted on the noticeboard in the Church annexe and we welcome your donations.  Thank you for your gifts!

 Giving to the poor is at the heart of the Christian gospel.
