Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent 2017

This Wednesday, March 1st, Ash Wednesday sees the start of the season of Lent.  Lent is the forty days of preparation before the greatest Christian festival, Easter.  We have a service on Ash Wednesday where we remind ourselves of the three duties of the Christian during Lent, Prayer, Fasting and Alms-giving.  This year our alms-giving efforts will be for CAFOD (Catholic Fund for Overseas Development) and Fr. Hudson’s which is the social care agency of the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
