THE THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER

 

Welcome to this week’s Benefice Bulletin. Hard copies are available from boxes to the left of Good Shepherd (church hall path) and in the cloisters at the back of St Saviour’s. Please take one if there are people you know who are unable to collect one themselves.

Below are downloads for the readings for the day. There’s no pastoral letter this week, because Deacon Corinne has been taking some well-earned time off to be with her family.

                                                                         Morning Prayer, 10.30am at The Good Shepherd

A reminder that Bishop Christopher’s farewell service will be taking place in Portsmouth cathedral at 4pm on Saturday 24th April. It’s very unfortunate that only a limited number of people can attend physically. But you are all invited to participate by watching the livestream via https://www.youtube.com/c/PortsmouthDiocese/featured.

The service will include the symbolic act in which Bishop Christopher lays his crozier on the cathedral altar to signify that his time as Bishop of Portsmouth has come to an end. Full details can be found on line at
