3rd Sunday of Lent 3rd March 2024

1.⁠ ⁠Today is the third Sunday of Lent and the readings invite us into the sacred presence of Christ and to cleanse our hearts. May this season of Lent be a divine opportunity to grow in holiness through our Lenten observance of prayer, fasting, abstinence and charity.

 2.⁠ ⁠The next Stations of the Cross in English will conducted by Zone 4 on the 8th of March.

 3.⁠ ⁠Those who wish to make the Pilgrimage to Vasai please reserve your seat and make your payment of Rs 200/- to Ms Freda at the KG office.

 4.⁠ ⁠We have introduced the concept of the giving box. The idea is that our sacrifice and fasting should benefit others. The box near the altar is meant to remind us that we are called to reach out to those in need. Your contribution placed in this box will be matched by the church and in the Easter season we will have the second round of the feeding project as done earlier during the World Day of the Poor. For convenience, we have put a QR code on the box for those who want to make an electronic transfer. Please indicate the cause in your transactions.
