Mothering Sunday 2006

Every year, mid-way through Lent, the solemnity of the six-week period of preparation for Easter is broken by the celebrations of Mothering Sunday. This is the proper and ancient name for the day taken over by the world as 'Mother's Day'. Although on that day the Church rightly pays tribute to mothers and their love for their families and children, the day has a wider scope and significance. On Mothering Sunday we remember not only others living and departed, but also our Mother Church, and the loving sacrifice of Mary, the Mother of God.

On March 26th, 2006, St Faith's was well-filled with families, adults and children for the Mothering Sunday Sung Eucharist. As usual at  our monthly New Worship family  services, children played a prominent part, carrying banners, reading, praying, taking the Peace to the congregation and assisting Fr Neil with the sermon. And at the end of the service children, and then adults, each collected a bunch of flowers to give to their parents or in their memory.
