St Anthony's of Calverton
Children's Good Friday Service
Our annual children's Good Friday Service took place this year with parishioners and visitors to our parish enjoying a moving and prayerful occasion for all to share in together. Over 30 children from the parish met for an hour before the service to rehearse readings, prayers, songs and a beautiful liturgical dance. The children represented all ages of our parish and all groups - the youngest being two years old from our children's liturgy group through to our confirmation young people, who were integral in supporting and leading our younger members. Over 100 people participated in reflecting and praying together - with the focus of the Stations of the Cross. The spirit of the event carried on after the service where all families sampled hot cross buns and made beautiful prayer crosses to take home as a reminder that Jesus died on the cross for us all. Thank you to all who participated in our wonderful event and for giving so generously of yourtime to support others in their Easter journey to meet our risen Lord.
