During Lent we spend more time in prayer and study to deepen & broaden our faith. At St Michael’s we use Wednesdays (3,10 Apr) for this. Stations of the Cross at 6pm is a prayerful 45min meditation on Jesus’ Passion. The Reading Group continues on the same 2 Wednesdays at 7pm for an hour or so as  we explore the writings of Cyprian, 3rd century Bishop and Martyr in Carthage.
