Machnamh / Reflection

Lent is an opportunity:
to give something back to my community,
to repent of my sins and be reconciled,
to encourage someone to come back to the church.
to pray from the heart in the quiet moments I put aside.
to fast in the name of Jesus who spent forty days in the wilderness.

Stations of the Cross
Every Friday of Lent at 7.05pm, followed by Mass at 7.30pm.
A Speaker from the Pro-Life Campaign will speak after Communion at the weekend Masses of March 3rd/4th. With the approval of Bishop Ray they have spoken in 20 parishes in our diocese to date.
