Parish Diary

Specific Events

Stations of the Cross: Every Friday in Lent, 7.00pm, in the church.

Lent Lunches: These ecumenical events will take place on the following Saturdays, 12 noon to 2.00pm, in these locations: March 25th, St Walstan’s Church.

Lenten Station Mass: This annual Mass celebrated by the entire Deanery will take place at the cathedral on Tuesday March 21st.  There will be exposition and confessions from 6.00pm with the Mass starting at 7.00pm, followed by light refreshments in the Narthex.  Please do come along to join in this Mass, showing that the Church is wider than our community at St Walstan’s

Walk of Witness: The Christian churches in Costessey will be holding a short walk of witness on Good Friday morning, April 7th.  It will begin with a reading and prayer here at St Walstan’s, followed by the walk to the Baptist church on The Street for a short service.  Please do come and join our Christian brothers and sisters in this united act.

DVD Dicussion Evenings: As usual, we will be holding a series of DVD/Discussion evenings in the Spring. [Please don’t be put off by the word ‘discussion’: they are more gentle chats and no one is forced to speak.] They will be held in the Garden Room at 7pm on Thursdays May 25th and June 1st, 8th, 15th & 22nd. This year’s DVDs are on Celtic Spirituality. An optional book to accompany the series costs £10. You don’t need the book to attend the evenings but if you would like a copy please let Fr David know as soon as possible so he can order them.

School Masses 2023:

At the moment it is still not possible for parishioners to attend Friday Mass at the school.  However, one or two of the Masses this term will be held in the church and parishioners are welcome to attend these.  Keep an eye on the Mass list on the front of the newsletter for those which will be in church.
