Ash Wednesday – 14 February is a day of fasting (only one full meal, and two small snacks and abstinence from all meat and
foods made with meat).  
This fasting and abstinence reminds us that Lent is a penitential season.

7 00pm - starting next Sunday 18 February.

 

The Stations of the Cross will be prayed each weekday during Lent at 12 noon All Saints’ Church.  A Rota of lay people is being prepared
to lead this prayer.  If you would like to help please add your name to the Rota.
