A Happy and Blessed beginning of this Holy Season of Lent! It was great to see so many of you at Mass on Ash Wednesday, it was a great way to begin our Lenten journey as we accompany the Lord in the wilderness. During Lent I hope we will all make the time to indulge in additional moments of prayer, devotion and penance. There will be confessions as usual throughout Lent and there will be Stations of the Cross on Fridays at both 12 Midday and at 7pm, this is in order that as many as possible can come and pray this devotion. On Tuesday 20th February there will be a Finance Committee Meeting at 7:30pm in the Presbytery with members of the Parish Finance Committee. On Wednesday 21st of Feb there will be Mass at 9:15am at St Robert’s School on their Patronal Feast Day, all are welcome to attend. Mass in the Parish Church that day will be at 11am.Session Three of the First Holy Communion programme will be on Saturday and Sunday this coming weekend. (24th/25th) Finally, the Itinerary and Information Pack with booking form for the Parish Pilgrimage to Rome in October is now available from the Parish Office. There are still spaces on the Pilgrimage if you would like to know information please speak to me. There are about 16 currently interested in going – it promises to be a great pilgrimage!
