PARISH MAGAZINE APRIL, 1908. HOLY WEEK AND EASTER. We are about to enter the most solemn season of the Christian year, which ends ■with the Crowning Day of Christendom- Easter Day. During Holy Week the thoughtis of all of us should be turned to '.the most sacred facts of our Faith, which remind us of the suffering and atcmemeht of our Lord. That leads u's to a joyful comanemoraton of His triumph over Sin and Death on Easter Day. In these days of laxity with regard to religious thought Christian people should more than ever dwell upon and cherish the great facts of their faith. During Holy Week there will be special services every morning and evening and on Good Friday, in addition to other ser¬ vices in the Ohurdhes, the Three Hours' Service will be held in Holy Trinity Church, which will be conducted by the Rev. D. W. Evans, Rector of Llanhaiarn. Vale of Clwyd.

For some time past the stone work of the WeSt Window in Holy Trinity Church has been in process of rapid decay, and it has been found on examination that it is not safe to leave it longer as it is. It is therefore proposed, as intended when the Church was re-roofed, to place a hew win¬ dow more in harmony with the other parts of the Church worked in durable stone. The Rector and Churchwardens have re¬ served money in hand to erect the win¬ dow, but not to fill it with painted glass. It is a very convenient opportunity for anyone who wishes to place in the Church a handsome memorial window as the stone tracery if desired will all be provided. The Rector will be glad to hear from anyone who would like to undertake this work. As it is a matter of urgency it is respectfully requested that intimation that the offer will be entertained be sent in not later than Saturday, the 18th inst. * * * CONFIRMATION. The Confirmation Service which had been fixed for the 8th of this month has been postponed until the latter part of May. We hope to give the exact date in our next issue. In the meantime the classes of preparation are proceeding, and as there is extended time for preparation any, who desire to be confirmed, and have not'sent in tneir names, are requested to do so at their earliest convenience.
