During the season of Lent, many people take on different tasks of giving up something, mostly for spiritual reasons. People give up things like cigarettes, alcohol, sweets or use their social media less. For others, they take on daily Mass or pray more. We also have the tradition of the Trocaire campaign where we help those in need. One of the more important aspects of Lent which has died away in recent years is taking on a temporary pledge for Lent. Many people choose this during the season to stay away from drink. So why not take the short-term pledge? You are welcome to contact the Parish Office if you feel you would like to take on this commitment for the season.
