RETURN TO MASS FOR LENT
Churches are safe and the doors are “wide open,” says Cardinal Vincent Nichols as we prepare to celebrate the prayerful season of Lent.
In a message to Catholic school pupils, Cardinal Nichols stresses the importance of “coming into the presence of God” to “join in fully in the prayer of the Mass.”
The Cardinal encourages young people to be part of the parish community – a family of the faith.
“When we come [to Mass], we receive the gifts of God. We receive His compassion, we receive His love. We come to know how to serve others and to give to them what we receive from the Lord.”
Lent starts on Ash Wednesday, 2 March 2022.
