May she rest in Peace.

God save the King.

Across the diocese, one of synod conversations was asking for opportunities to learn more about Scripture. In response, you are now being invited to a performance of the whole gospel of Mark in one evening. We are used to hearing stories and extracts from the Gospels at Mass; as you probably know, since the reforms of Vatican ll, the lectionary is organised into three-year cycles of readings, A, B, or C, beginning on the first Sunday of Advent.

● Year A: Gospel of Matthew

● Year B: Gospel of Mark

Year C: Gospel of Luke, which we are in now.

(The Gospel of John is read throughout Easter, and other liturgical seasons)

The performance of “I, Mark”, at St Marie’s Cathedral on 8 October at 7pm, gives you the opportunity to gather to listen to nearly the whole Gospel, all in one evening. What will it be like to be open to hearing this, the oldest Gospel, in this setting, in this way? It will be a different way of experiencing the Word of God, and there will be opportunity afterwards to ask questions, and share your response to the experience. All are welcome. There is no charge but there will be opportunity to contribute towards the cost of the event.
