As the Lenten season begins on Ash Wednesday we are called by the Church to
pray, fast, and do works of mercy.
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of
fast and abstinence. Lent is a penitential season of prayer, self-denial and helping others.
In this way, the Church prepares for Easter and joyfully welcomes those adults who have completed the RCIA programme and consequently be baptised during the Easter Saturday Vigil Mass.
