To mark the beginning of Lenten season, the faithful of Siddhpur parish gathered in the evening of Ash Wednesday for the Holy Eucharist after fasting the whole day. Fr. Robert John Kennedy who has come to the mission celebrated the Holy Eucharist and after the breaking of the Word of God by Fr. Xavier James, Fr. Kennedy blessed and imposed ashes on the forehead. As the faithful departed for home with cross on their forehead, neighbours were inquiring about the significance of it and this was an opportunity for most of us to explain about the season of Lent. Every Friday the stations of the Cross is planned to have in different homes of the faithful.
