Rite of Election!

This afternoon The Cathedral was full! People had traveled from across the diocese to be here for the Rite of Election. Over fifty of those to be received into the Church this Easter had made the journey, along with their sponsors or Godparents, family, friends and parish priests. To see so many people making the choice to enter into full communion with the Church is a great sign of hope and commitment to the future. It was a great joy to be a part of their journey.

Lent begins ....

Where have the last couple of weeks gone? Already we are on the cusp of a new liturgical season, tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the great season of Lent. It is traditional to try and give something up for Lent, to use the time of self denial to bring us closer to the God who loves us. What are you planning to give up this Lent?
