Wednesday 13th Feb – 10th April 2013

Ash Wednesday 2013, begins a wonderful 9 week Novena in our Parish Church, St. Peter and Paul’s Church.

The novena will take place every Wednesday evening at 7:30pm.

An important element to this Novena will be praying for personal petitions. These petitions will be remembered and prayed for throughout the Nine Week Novena.

We are delighted each week to welcome such excellent speakers who will speak words of hope and encouragement to us as we grow in our friendship with the Lord.

Please feel very welcome to make this spiritual celebration every week.
