Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday here we go again comes to mind as it seems like no time since we began lent 2016  and here we are at Lent 2017 as usual time keeps marching on. As we place the ashes on our foreheads this year and listen to the words repent and believe in the good news  we remember that the Church teaches that prayer, fasting, and almsgiving are significant ways to become closer to God.  The decision for each of us on Ash Wednesday is to determine the way we want to celebrate Lent for this year. Over the next six weeks there will be a packed programme of activities providing many opportunities for undertaking spiritual renewal coupled with fasting and alms giving and I encourage you wherever you are reading this to try and take up some of the opportunities provided  in your area for Lent. As we begin our Lenten journey for 2017 may god give us his grace to make a good Lent as we begin our journey  on the road to Easter .
