There will be a concert of Monteverdi's Vespers in Church on Saturday, 24 March starting at 7.30pm. This will be sung by the Torbay Singers and the music will beplayed on historically authentic instruments. Should be a great night out and a wonderful introduction to Holy Week.
Next weeky is Palm Sunday and we begin the Procession in the Hall at 10.15am.
It is my hope that we will all bring in a flower or a pot plant on Easter Sunday. I hope you will put your flowers on the Cross as a way of showing how Lenten penance has turned to Easter joy.
