From the Vicar - February 2016

February sees the beginning of the season of Lent. The word Lent is an Old English word which means ‘lengthen’.  Lent comes at a time of year when the days are beginning to get longer, albeit slowly. It is traditional for people to give something up during lent as a reminder of the temptations Jesus faced in the desert. Lent is also the way of good works and putting the needs of others before our own.

With this in mind, the congregation of St Dyfnog’s will be supporting WaterAid through their Jars of Change for Jars of Water Lent Appeal. By collecting and donating the small change we find in our pockets and purses throughout Lent we will be able to help bring clean water to communities around the world who lack the facilities for safe, clean water.

Deanery Quiz

This year's Deanery Quiz is at St Mary's Church in Denbigh, on Tuesday February 9th (Shrove Tuesday, as it happens!) Start time is 7:00pm. Teams should be no more than six people, and the cost is £5 per team. It's a "Bring and Share" supper: if your surname begins A-M, bring a savoury dish, and if it begins N-Z, bring a sweet dish.

See you there!
