At the Parish Mass this morning Father Mervyn presided and Father Martin read the Gospel, preached, led us in our Intercessions and concelebrated. In his sermon Father Martin talked about the way we should prepare to use the season of Lent, due to begin on Wednesday – Ash Wednesday. We should keep the three Pillars of Lent: Fasting, Prayer, Almsgiving and he suggested various ways we could do so. He would amplify this in his homily on Wednesday evening he said.
The Confirmation Preparation Course commenced this Sunday after the Parish Mass.
