LENT 2021


Jesus’ 40 days of prayers and fasting in the desert inspires us as we begin our Lenten journey on Ash Wednesday in preparation for Lent.

The three great pillars of Lent are Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving.

You can tune into Mass each morning at 10.00am from Bohermeen Church. You are asked to fast in order to make space for God in your life and you can collect your Trocáire Box in any of the three Churches and help save lives of people struggling to survive in the third world.

Suggested programme for Lent

Monday: Log in to Mass

Tuesday: Cook a nice meal for your family and phone someone who may be feeling lonely

Wednesday: Contribute to Trocáire

Thursday: Spend time in prayer, especially pray in thanksgiving for all the gifts God has given you

Friday: Join the Stations of the Cross at 9.30am on our webcam .Abstain from meat

Saturday: Go for a walk
