There will be Ash Wednesday Mass and imposition of ashes at 7.30 am. All welcome!

Pope Francis has asked us to fast for peace on Ash Wednesday.

“I have great pain in my heart over the worsening situation in Ukraine,”
“Like me, many people all over the world are anguished and worried. Once again, everyone’s peace is threatened by one side’s interests.”
“I would like all those who have the political
responsibility to make a serious examination of
conscience before God, who is the God of peace
and not of war… He wants us to be brothers and
not enemies. I pray that all parties involved will
refrain from any action that will cause even more
suffering for people, destabilizing coexistence
among nations and undermining international law.”
“And now, I would like to appeal to everyone,
believers and non-believers alike. Jesus taught us
that the diabolical evil of violence is answered
with the weapons of God, with prayer and
fasting,”
“I invite everyone to make next March 2, Ash
Wednesday, a day of fasting for peace. I
encourage believers in a special way to devote
themselves intensely to prayer and fasting on that
day. May the Queen of Peace preserve the world
from the madness of war.”
