Shrove Tuesday was traditional a time to prepare for lent. A part of that preparation would be to be shriven by going to confession. We would also have a big feast before the fast by eating up all those things not used in Lent.

In this spirit confessions with exposition will be made available at Christ the King between 4pm – 7pm. At 7.30pm we will gather in the parish room and do some good old feasting! Pancakes will be available, please bring something, savoury or sweet, for fillings plus other food if you wish.


The fasting begins on Ash Wednesday with traditional ashing. Masses in the parish will be:

8.00am Latin Mass Christ the King.

10.00am St Joachim’s.

7.30pm Christ the King
