Ash Wednesday on Canary Wharf

Archbishop Vincent Nichols will be visiting Canary Wharf in London's Docklands next week, to celebrate the Ash Wednesday Mass.  Barclays have once again given permission for the service to be held at their headquarters located at One Churchill Place.

The Ash Wednesday Mass is the biggest event of the Canary Wharf Catholic Community calendar and allows about 500 Canary Wharf Catholics and other Christians who may have difficulty attending Masses or receiving ashes in their own parishes to begin the season of Lent near their workplaces.

The Mass will be on the evening of 17 February with entry at 5pm and Mass starting at 5.30pm.

You will need to be registered to gain access to the Barclays building. To register, please complete the form at: www.cwcc.org.uk/2010/01/ash-wednesday-registration/.

There is a flyer attached to the form. If you are able to, please print this out and place it on a notice board in your workplace or ask your parish priest if you are able to place in on the notice board in your church.
