Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time | 26th February 2017
Wednesday, March 1st, is ASH WEDNESDAY and marks the beginning of Lent.
Masses will be celebrated at 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
Ashes will be distributed at both services. We hope this will provide all parishioners with the opportunity to begin their Lenten journey in prayer and devotion. We would also remind you that Ash Wednesday is a universal day of fast and abstinence from meat. All who are between the age of 18-59, and in good health are required to fast. Fasting means we can have only one full meal. Some food can be taken at the other regular meal times if necessary, but combined they should be less than a full meal.
Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. This season offers us all a very special opportunity to grow in our relationship with God and to deepen our commitment to a way of life, rooted in our baptism. In our busy world, Lent provides us with an opportunity to reflect upon our patterns, to pray more deeply, experience sorrow for what we’ve done and failed to do, and to be generous to those in need.
