Lent & Easter Services

Lent 2023

Lent is a period of penitential preparation for Easter. It begins on Ash Wednesday, six and a half weeks before Easter, and provides for a 40-day fast (Sundays are excluded), in imitation of Jesus Christ’s fasting in the wilderness before he began his public ministry.


ASH WEDNESDAY (22nd February)

9.30am Ceremony of Ashes and said Holy Communion

7.30pm Ceremony of Ashes and Sung Mass



Saturday 25th February and all Saturday mornings in Lent at 9.30am


Lent Course

During Lent, we will be looking at the Lent course created by our diocese entitled ‘Travelling Well Together’

Every week there will be the opportunity to talk about the content of the respective video/bible reading with one another on Saturdays at 10.30-11.30am (beginning Saturday 25th February)

Also, during Lent, both Fr Michael and Fr Peter are available to offer the sacrament of reconciliation/ hear personal confessions, and if this is something you would like to do, please get in touch with either of them to arrange a time.
