Schedule for Holy Week and Easter 2024

During the coming Sundays of Lent, we will offer the opportunity to pray the Stations of the Cross. This is a long-held prayer within the Church. My understanding is that this devotion arose within the Church in the Middle Ages, as a way of allowing the faithful to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, without actually, physically going there. So, for us, the Stations of the Cross are a pilgrimage we can make this Lent in faith.

*********** Good Friday is a day of FASTING and ABSTINENCE ***********

The Catholic Church asks that Good Friday be an extra day of sacrifice, including fasting and abstinence from meat. On ordinary Fridays during Lent, the Church asks we undertake some form of sacrifice – prayer, helping the poor, fasting.
For Good Friday, members of the Church, aged between 18 and 59, are obliged to fast – eat less. Abstinence from meat is obligatory for members from age 14.
