Spend a day with God at Rotherham church event

RELIGIOUS people have a chance to attend a Day with the Lord event with a series of services and activities this weekend.

St Bede’s Catholic Church in Masbrough will hold the special Reflection for Lent day on Saturday and invited people to call in and find out more.

The event will take place from 9am to 6pm at the Station Road place of worship.

The day starts with morning prayer at 9am, followed by exposition of the blessed sacrament and guided prayer meditation at 9.30am.

At 10am there will be a period of quiet time before a holy mass celebrated by Bishop Ralph Heskett at noon.

From 1pm there will be exposition of the blessed sacrament, a period of quiet time and confessions will be available before a prayer of divine mercy at 2pm led by the Polish community but presented in English.

The Indian community will hold a rosary at 3pm and at 5pm there is a passiontide production led by student from St Bernard’s School called Born For This.

There will be another period of quiet time from 5.45pm until 6pm, when a night prayer sung by candlelight will take place before supper in the Parish Rooms at 6.30pm.

People will also have an opportunity to see the church itself, the foundation stone of which was laid in 1841 prior to it being opened 15 months later.

There are also some impressive stained glass windows, hand-painted icons and a newly refurbished pipe organ.
