Help for Lent


…. the Bible! Try going through a Gospel such as Luke or Mark slowly, a bit at a time… A Pilgrimage Companion, a beautiful booklet from our Bishops for the Year of Mercy, 50p.


Why not try to attend an extra weekday Mass?… Arrange with friends to attend the Cardiff Deanery Lenten Station Mass at the Cathedral Monday 7th March.. Note the Holy week services – some united this year – Maundy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper at Christ the King, Good Friday Liturgy at St Paul’s and Christ the King, Easter Vigil at St Brigid’s.


Stations of the Cross each Friday at St Paul’s and Saturday at St Brigid’s 9.00am before Mass. Look at the unique Stations in Christ the King for this Lent and Come to the very special talk on the Stations at Christ the King on Thursday 3rd March. Come to Adoration Tuesday at Christ the King 10-1, Wednesday at St Paul’s 10am onwards, St Brigid’s Wednesdays 8-9pm.


Confessions Friday 10am St Paul’s, Saturday 10am St Brigid’s and 5.30pm Christ the King. In the week before the Triduum there will be special times throughout the city when visiting priests will be available in all churches, including Christ the King on Monday of Holy Week.

We will use this after Communion this weekend. Use it at home too…

Lord Jesus Christ, we trust your words
that you did not come to search for the good and righteous
but to walk alongside each one of us
as we struggle with temptation and sin.

We ask you to walk with us this Lent.
Be with us as we try to overcome the temptations that come our way.
And teach us topray with new joy;
fast with a willing heart;
and give generously to those in need.
