Lent Posters and Information
Listen and reflect ...
During Lent you may notice a box labelled Lenten Alms on the bench to the front right side of the sanctuary. This is a box where you can deposit the money you would have spent on some luxury in Lent. The Archbishop nominates a good cause each year for this money to go to
- A group of parishioners are meeting together during Lent to pray the Stations of the Cross. We will meet on Friday’s at 2.00pm. All are welcome. Each week we hope to use a different meditation. There will be no meetings on the 17th and 31st March (the church is unavailable) or on Good Friday - as there will be Stations held that evening.
- Also... Devine Mercy Piece Group will be meeting during Lent to Pray the Stations of the Cross and Chaplet on Friday’s at 7.30pm, excluding Good Friday.

BE ALIVE, MARCH 2017
THE JOY OF LENT
The old translation of the First Lenten Preface spoke in gratitude to God in these words: “Each year you give us this joyful season when we prepare to celebrate the paschal mystery with mind and heart renewed.” The new translation reads: “For by your gracious gift each year your faithful await the sacred paschal feasts with the joy of minds made pure.” I admit that these words are a more exact translation of the Latin, but there was always something refreshing about the challenge of actually seeing Lent as a “joyful season” to offset the temptation of entering the six weeks with a sense of misery and foreboding.
