Wednesday, 5 March is Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. Ash Wednesday is a day of Fasting and Abstinence i.e. no meat and eat frugally. Ashes will be blessed and distributed at all Masses. In the six weeks of this season, we look at our souls more carefully and either do something positive or deprive the body of something.
Ash Wednesday, 5 March
0730 Ash Wednesday Masses with Blessing and imposition of Ashes
1000 Ash Wednesday, St Anthony’s School Mass

During the season of Lent, all families have the opportunity to welcome an icon into their homes to share together as a family preparing for Easter. If you are interested in taking part, please sign up in the porch at the end of Mass (there will be a sign up sheet near the noticeboard) or contact the Pastoral Assistant: email@example.com.
One great way to observe lent is by reading Pope Francis exhortation “The Joy of the Gospel”.
