Cross of Soil

posted Feb 19, 2018, 12:03 PM by Bohernabreena Parish News   [ updated Feb 19, 2018, 12:04 PM ]

In St Anne's church, we will mark Lent this year with a cross-shaped structure in front of the altar which everyone is invited to add a cupful of soil, clay or sand, from a place which has some special association for them - home, a field, a graveside or other place. The children preparing for their first communion processed up carrying soil today, but this is an activity for everyone to participate in. Pop in any time the church is open to add your soil, to contribute your piece in our cross-shape that makes up our parish community this Lent.

We remember our community over the last 150 years and how materials from many local places were used in the building of the church. Whether you are a regular or drop in occasionally, please bring a little soil when you can visit.

What inspires you when you think of the church on the hill, serving the community for 150 years? Is it a symbol from the daily life of the church – water, a cross, a candle? Is it people gathering together to celebrate the sacraments, week after week, whatever else is going on? Is it the location of the church, the countryside church on the edge of the city?
There’s lots of scope for design and creativity here, so please do join in and create a logo. All submissions are welcome, and will be displayed in Roseanna Hall in December.
