The time of Lent begins on the next Wednesday, which is the Ash Wednesday. Lent is a time of our conversion and preparation for Easter. The best way of our spiritual renewal is to receive sacraments of confession and Eucharist, prayer, fast and charity work.

Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Fasting means partaking of only one full meal and of two light meals. In addition, all Catholics 14 years old and older must abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. There will be Holy Mass in Finnish on the Ash Wednesday at 8 am and at 6 pm and Mass in English at 4 pm.

We will raise fund during the Lent to help the poor.

We will celebrate the Stations of the Cross in English on Sundays at 5.30.

There will be an adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the next Saturday at 3.30 pm as the continuation of the “Encounter with Jesus” program.

We celebrate the novena to Our Mother of the Perpetual Help every Wednesday after the evening Mass. You can write your petitions and drop it into a box next to the statue of Mary at the back of the church. The petitions will be read during the novena.

You can bring to the church palm branches which were blessed last year on the Palm Sunday.

There will be the commemoration of Our Lady of Lourdes and the World Day of the Sick on Tuesday, 11th of February. Our sick parishioners can inform us that they are willing to receive the anointment of the sick during the Mass at 6 pm on Tuesday or at home. The anointment of the sick is a healing sacrament in which God bestows on us all what we need physically and spiritually to overcome illness and suffering. The anointment of the sick is recommended before surgery, for those suffering from chronic illnesses, for elderly. Don’t hesitate to ask for this sacrament.

We encourage parishioners to inform the parish office about possible changes of your address in order to update our register.
