The Blessing and Imposition of Ashes will be at the 7 am mass and 7 pm mass. Please note that the imposition of ashes is a sign of repentance and the willingness to walk in the way of the Lord. It is important to note that only those who have received 1st Holy Communion may have ashes imposed on them. Please avoid bringing children and babies for the imposition of ashes.

The box placed 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 feeding project as done earlier during the World Day of the Poor
