Please note that Easter Day this year is the day that clocks go forward.

There are a lot of simple cleaning jobs needing to be done on Holy Saturday. If you can help, please come to morning prayer and stay on to help get the place looking lovely for Easter Day.

For anyone receiving this who has never spent Holy Week in St Mary's, there's a discription of the services from Maundy Thursday through to Easter Day from a couple of years ago on my blog here: http://thurible.net/2015/04/02/the-triduum/

I look forward to seeing people next week in St Mary's as we keep the great festival together. For those travelling who are away from Glasgow, I'm happy to try to help find or recommend other places in the world where holy week might be kept. For those at a distance, I'll try to keep posting the sermons online.

Best regards


PS - there will be palm crosses available at all the services this coming Sunday.
