Catechism Day will be celebrated today with mass at 9.15am followed by distribution of prizes. There will not be Sunday Catechism classes for children from next Sunday onwards and no mass in St Agnes Chapel for small children until school re-opens. But all have to attend mass on Sundays in the Parish Church
Wednesday,26th February will be Ash Wednesday. We begin the season of lent from that day. Masses in the morning at 6am, 7.15am and 9.00am, and in the evening at 5.00pm and 6.15pm. Ash Wednesday & Good Friday are days of fasting and abstinence. All Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence from eating meat. The law of abstinence applies to all who have reached the age of fourteen. The law of fasting applies to all who have attained the age i.e. 18 years to 60 years age
On all Friday’s of Lent, there will be Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament & Way of the Cross from 4.00pm to 5.00pm followed by Holy mass. Ward Members are given the responsibilities for conducting Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and The Way of the Cross. Kindly refer the March issue of Voice of Bendur for the details.
It is sad to note that last Sunday quite a few students missed their catechism exam. May be due to some reason or negligence. Few parents met the Paris Priest and informed regarding the absence and they wrote exam later. Those who have not informed and not written the exam please meet the parish priest on Tuesday at 5.30pm along with the parents.
