Lent 2016 begins this Wednesday 10 February 

How time flies!  We are once more nearly at the start of the holy season of Lent.  If you didn’t get a lent leaflet outlining our lent activities last week, please pick up a copy at the back of church.  On Ash Wednesday we celebrate the beginning of Lent 2016 with a special Mass at 7pm.  

As you are already aware, Lent is a time of penitence and discipline where through the Imposition of ashes we are reminded of our mortality.  However, Lent is also a time for growth and healing, a time of deepening and renewing our relationship with God – it is a time where we can make a spiritual journey and develop fresh insights about our relationship with God, ourselves and our neighbours.


With every blessing
