As we enter the season of Lent you will find details of our special services and weekly meditations here.

What is Lent? Lent is a season of the Christian Year when Christians focus on simple living, prayer, and fasting in order to grow closer to God. The forty days of Lent traditionally start on Ash Wednesday which occurs this year on 10th February.

Lenten Lunches - A popular and social event in the Parish, the Lenten Lunches commence on Thursday 11th February, from 12.30pm – 1.30pm in the Parish Centre. Proceeds from these lunches (€8) go towards the work of Christian Aid and other Third World Charities. Please do support this initiative on the Thursdays during Lent.
