The time of Lent begins on the next Wednesday, 17.2, 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. The evening Mass on the Ash Wednesday will be celebrated without the presence of the faithful due to recording of the Mass by the television. All reservations for this Mass are cancelled. 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 pm.

There will be an adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the next Saturday 20.2 at 3.30 pm as the continuation of the “Encounter with Jesus” program.
