Lent starts on Wednesday this week. Three Masses on Ash Wednesday at: 8.30 a.m.; 12 noon and 8.00 p.m. Ashes will be distributed at each Mass. This is a day of Fast and Abstinence. Every Friday evening of Lent there will be Mass at 7.30 p.m. followed by the Stations of the Cross. Daily Mass during Lent is a great way of entering into these special days leading to the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus. Each will have their own way of marking this holy season.
