Living Lent

Lent is that time of year when we prepare ourselves for the celebration of the greatest of the greatest events in human history: the death and resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  During Lent please do join us for any of our services and devotions.  

Fr Andrew is available throughout Lent to hear confessions or offer spiritual guidance.

ASH WEDNESDAY  - 6th March 2019

12 noon and 7.30pm - Mass with the imposition of Ashes

During this service we receive the sign of the cross on our foreheads made with ash from last year's Palm Crosses, it reminds us of our own mortality and for our need to prepare ourselves for life with Jesus
