As a result of the Covid pandemic and the restrictions imposed on regular worship by the government, our observance of the season of Lent this year has forced to be different.
During Lent, our Lenten Cross would normally be in the Sanctuary but this year it was placed in the foyer so that it could be seen by passers-by. The cross was “dressed” each week to show the symbols of Christ’s suffering & death. A printed explanation of each week’s new addition was placed so that it could be read through the window. The photograph below shows the Lenten Cross as appeared on Good Friday.
On Easter Day, after the symbols of Christ’s suffering and death had been removed, everyone was invited to share in transforming the cross into a symbol of resurrection by placing flowers on it.
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
