Vibhoothi - Ashes and Mass tonight at 7.00PM

To 
Members of St. Mary's Parish Family

Subject: Ash Monday Mass: 7.00PM tonight. 

LENT - 2017  began this morning at 12.00AM.

To take part in the blessing with ashes and Holy Mass to officially begin this spiritual journey of 50 days of grace, I remind and invite you all to our church at 7.00PM. The whole service will take approximately one hour.

Make sure that your children attend this most important ceremony which they will remember and observe throughout their lives. This is also a great occasion for teaching them about the importance of saying sorry and changing bad habits if there are any. 

Let's take Lent serious!!

Much love,
Fr T
