lent 2017





There shall be a wonderful opportunity to come and celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Sunday 25th March 4pm with a special service where other priests of the Deanery shall be present to hear your confession. This is the most precious way in which we prepare our souls for the celebration of Easter by turning from our sins and allowing the Lord to set us free so please do make the most of this opportunity.

Born For This

A powerful and moving depiction of the Stations of the Cross led by the team from the Southwark Catholic Youth Service with members of our Phoenix Youth Club. This unmissable reflection takes place on the 24th March at 6pm in the Relic Chapel, Aylesford Priory. Free admission. If there any other young people (over 15 years old) in the parish who enjoy performing and are interested in taking part and who are available for the whole day on Saturday 24 March 2018 for rehearsals at Aylesford Priory, please contact Lydia Burchell via the Parish Office.



There are various printed resources for children and adults available to buy in the Repository including "Walk with Me” and “My Day by Day" booklets.


The 40 days of Lent reflect the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness; Jesus fasted during this time and so Catholics identify with his suffering by abstaining from particular foods during Lent and by extra prayer and charitable works.

These 40 days are an opportunity to remember Jesus’ death; a time to reflect on what we have received through Jesus’ death for us: healing, freedom, salvation, forgiveness, life... 40acts is a generosity challenge inviting us all to approach Lent a little differently. During the 40 days of Lent (Sundays aren’t counted), you are invited to take part in 40 simple acts of generosity, and to be more generous in our words, our actions, our whole lives!
