Information from Fr Bruce - Lent
Information from Fr Bruce – Lent

I would like to announce a few changes which will take place during Lent –

  • Stations of the Cross will take place on Fridays at 7.00pm. It will not be preceded by a Mass.
  • Next week we shall have our new format NEWSLETTER. I hope you will enjoy the meditation printed on the front; our own news printed on the inside and the added bonus of having the Mass printed on the back. Please will you take one for each Family.
  • Change of Masses: as from the 1st week of Lent there will be an Evening Mass said at Our Lady Star of the Sea on a Thursday at 6.30pm. There will be no 7.30am Mass at Le Platon on Thursdays. This is an attempt to balance the number of Masses between the churches of the Parish.

Votive Candles/Tea-Lights
Votive Candles/Tea-Lights

Principally for environmental reasons, but also due to escalating costs, it has been decided to gradually replace the current votive candles (with plastic cups) to that of a more environmentally friendly tea-light (with metal cup). Unfortunately, the votive candles cannot be re-cycled as each of the plastic cups contain a metal disc and wax residue.

Although the tea-lights are smaller than the votive candles, they have a lighting time of 4 hours. Once the current stock of votive candles has been exhausted we will revert to the new tea-lights.

Should you have any queries/questions regarding these new arrangements please do not hesitate to contact André Hervé – E-mail: aherve@cwgsy.net or the Parish Office.

CAFOD theme for this Lent ‘Your love expressed through their hands’ highlights the support given to health experts working in the most deprived parts of our world. People like Sr Consilia of Zimbabwe, a pharmacist who has helped to save the lives of many women and children. At her clinic pregnant mothers and babies get check ups, advice and medication. She says ‘Not one mother or baby was lost last year.’
