Women of Holy Week

Part of our Lent activities will include a quiet evening based on Women of Holy Week – a series of stories about nine women written by Paula Gooder.

Starting with Palm Sunday and finishing with Ascension Day, we’ll be invited to imagine what it might have been like to be with Jesus in this final week of his life through the perspective of nine different women. Some of them we know with certainty were there because the Gospels tell us they were: the widow with two coins, the woman with the ointment of pure nard, Mary wife of Clopas, Mary Magdalene, Mary mother of Jesus.

Some are not mentioned at all, but someone like them was probably present: a woman journeying to Jerusalem for the Passover, the wife of a scribe, and a female disciple at the Last Supper.

We’ll listen to each woman’s story helped by a specially painted image to accompany.

There will be pauses between each story for reflection and at the end of our time together.

Please join us on Thursday 21 March at St Luke’s, 7.00-9.30pm

St Luke’s Church, The Village, London, SE7 8UG
