“The only worthwhile striving is after the highest ideals: If you aim for an easy target, your standard will inevitably decline, and no progress is ever made, except through real effort and real suffering.” - Servant of God Fra' Andrew Bertie                                                                                                                                                 "Work as if everything depends on you, pray as if everything depends on God" - Saint Ignatius of Loyola


Masses for Ash Wednesday will be at 11 am and 6.30 pm.  Ashes will be imposed at both Masses.

The morning Mass will be celebrated by the Hospital Chaplain, Fr Richard Sloan, and the evening Mass will be a sung Latin Mass, celebrated by Monsignor Gilles Wach, Prior-General of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.   We are very grateful to Monsignor Wach for joining us for a second year running.

You are reminded that this is a day of Fasting and Abstinence, that is, those of us between the ages of 14 and 60 years must abstain from all meat products, and only eat one simple main meal and two small snacks.  Water may be drunk all day.
