Our Holy Father, Pope Francis has called for a 24 Hour Prayer Vigil, and Bishop Sebastian has instructed all Churches, Chapels and religious communities in the Diocese to participate.

In our parish, the vigil will begin on 13 March (Fri) at Church of Our Lady of Sorrows – OLS, with Way of the Cross at 6.00 pm, and ends on 14 March (Sat) with the 6.45 pm Sunset Mass. All are encouraged to attend.

Read about it here at Catholic Bishops website; there are also some good points about confession.

Lenten Campaign


Gong Xi Fa Cai

Fr Nelson Chitty, Fr Michael Thoo and all staff of City Parish, would like to wish all those who celebrate the Lunar New Year “Gong Xi, Gong Xi”

Ash Wednesday and Chinese New Year

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference, M’sia–S’pore–Brunei decided that since Ash Wednesday falls on CNY Eve (February 18): Masses with imposition of ashes on Ash Wednesday continue. Fasting can take place on Ash Wednesday itself or another day to be decided by the individual.

Please refer below for the Mass time for Ash Wednesday and Chinese New Year.
(Note:  Ash Wednesday is not a Day of Obligation but a Day of Fast and Abstinence)

Also, for Fridays in Lent (beginning 20 Feb), Way of the Cross Service is stated. It will be the same time on every Fridays, unless stated otherwise.
