THE 6th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - 11th February 2024


My Dear Friends,

When Our Lord cured the Leper, as recounted in our Sunday Gospel reading, it enabled him to be restored to his family and friends as well as to health. By being renewed with the Sacred Body and Blood of Christ at Mass, we are strengthened and united to the family that is God’s One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

FORTHCOMING EVENTS 

ASH WEDNESDAY AND THE BEGINNING OF LENT. Our keeping of the Holy Season of Lent begins this 14th February with the reception of Ashes that remind us that we are God’s creation. He fashioned us out of clay and while acknowledging this through the ash, we also share the hope that, freed from the corruption of sin and death, we may share too in the glory of our Lord’s Resurrection and eternal life.


There will be a Mass with the imposition of Ashes at 12.15 pm and a Sung Mass at 6.30 pm on the day. As disciples of Christ please join us for this marking of our Lenten journey towards Easter.
