Sadly, our churches will still be closed as we enter the season of Lent, however, we can still do our best to participate in the rites marking the beginning of this time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
We have provided a Liturgy of the Word that can be celebrated at home. Some copies are available with ashes; both can be collected from St Bridget’s Presbytery front porch and also from St Francis of Assisi Church (top entrance). Ash Wednesday Mass will be celebrated at 10am and 7pm and can be viewed online. When preparing your ashes we suggest a couple of drops of olive oil rather than water.
