Your Lent

What will your Lent 2019 look like? By Easter Sunday (21 April) what will you have achieved and how will you have grown?

Growing and Sharing “Journeying with Jesus” – A very special recommendation to join one of the groups which will be meeting through Lent to follow Fr Denis McBride’s excellent book for the season.

“Walk With Me” Most of these books have gone – a few remain

Fasting and Almsgiving We have two special opportunities this Lent to give so that our sisters and brothers can live. Firstly this Friday is CAFOD Family Fast Day. Please take an envelope and return it next week with money you have saved by consuming less on Friday. Secondly the worldwide charity Aid to the Church in Need will be making an appeal in our churches – in St Paul’s next week and Christ the King and St Brigid’s the following weekend. We apologise for the closeness of these two calls on your pocket. When the CAN appeal was planned last summer we didn’t realize that Lent and so Family Fast Day were later than usual.

Sacraments and Prayer
Reconciliation During the week Monday – Friday 8 – 12 April parishes in our Cardiff Deanery take turns in hosting times for Reconciliation with visiting priests. Our allotted time is Wednesday 10 April 7 – 8pm. We will publish the full list as soon as possible. Note this will take the form of our Penitential Service replacing the planned date.

Stations of the Cross
Each Friday & Saturday at 9am before Mass at St Paul and St Brigid’s respectively

Deanery Station Mass
Wednesday 20 March 7pm at St Mary’s Canton
