Last year we held our first Lent Lunch in
recent times. This year we held two Lent
Lunches each one in support of differing
charities – The Famine in East Africa and
Family Support Work (Sussex).
Both Lunches were very well attended
(about 25 people) and as you would expect
it was simple fayre – Soup, Bread and Cheese.
There was a very convivial atmosphere and
everyone had a chance to chat and air their
concerns about the needs others at home and
abroad. The first Lunch in aid of the East African
Famine Relief on the 17th March raised about
£107.00 after costs and the second one in aid
of FSW raised £120.00. Very many thanks to
those in the Events Group that made this
possible and to those that attended.

On Good Friday the Pope commemorates the Via Crucis (‘Way of the Cross’) at the Colosseum:
A huge cross with burning torches illuminates the sky as the 14 Stations of the Cross are described
in several languages. Mass is celebrated on the evening of Holy Saturday, and on Easter Sunday,
thousands of visitors congregate in St. Peter’s Square to await the Pope’s blessing from the
church’s balcony, known as Urbi et Orbi (‘To the City and to the World’).

A Will is a legal document that conﬁrms how you wish your
property, personal possessions, savings and investments
to be distributed upon your death. For a Will to be valid the
