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.
Presider on 9 Feb. will be Rev.Fr. Phillip Tan, CDD
There will be a short ceremony after the evening mass (9 Feb) to pay respects to the ancestors as a sign of respecting the dead and honoring them on this special day.
Please note that the Chinese Apostolate is having a fund raising project to sell angpow packets. Kindly give your support. For pictures of the angpow, please see our Facebook album.
