Pippa Reid- Foster – Harp and Clarsach
Pippa is a graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, is not only an accomplished performer and composer but is also passionate about passing on her skills to a new generation of musicians and composers. Alongside her hectic performance schedule and her teaching practice, together with fellow clarsach player, Heather Downie, she runs ‘Harp Bazaar’, a popular workshop which covers all things harp related including regular clarsach workshops and courses for both children and adults in venues around Scotland. Pippa will be joined by her mother – an accomplished violinist.
St Mary’s Summer Fair 17th June
Susan Forsyth asks that you publicise this event as widely as possible and its date Saturday 17th June. We are particularly interested in offering potential stallholders spaces for the day.
Easter Lily funds
Carol Seymour, the flower rota convenor at St Mary’s writes
‘The flower ladies give their time and flowers over the years to make St Mary’s look cheerful. I feel sorry that it is mostly them who donate to the lily fund and hope others can be kind and donate to support the flower ladies who do so much at Easter, Christmas, Harvest Festival making the church look wonderful
Any extra money will be kept for buying Oasis, candles at Christmas and the Advent wreath and only this year the Easter Eggs which can be safely kept for another year’.
Heather Swaine the convenor at St Andrew’s will also welcome similar donations in the box at the back of church for that purpose.

The Third Sunday of Lent
whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain,
and entered not into glory before he was crucified:
mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross,
may find it none other than the way of life and peace;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
