Mass of the Blessing of Oils
I most cordially invite you to share with me in a solemn Mass and Consecration of the Holy Oils on Wednesday in Holy Week, 28th March, 2018 at the Church of the Ascension, Sion Hill, Kingstown beginning at 5:00pm.
I look forward very much to the collegiality, and renewal of our Ordination Vows. The colour is white.
Please bring along containers, so that you may collect the Holy Oils for use in your Parishes.
An invitation is also extended to all those who have been licensed or commissioned to renew their vows at this service.
Please invite members of the various congregations to attend the service.
Lent and Good Friday Collections
As you are aware, our Diocese has for several years been extending our missionary outreach to West Africa, and particularly to the Diocese of Guinea, by sending to them our special Lenten Collections from the various parishes. I urge that such contributions be made, and I shall arrange for them to be despatched after the Lenten Season.
Please also be reminded of the Good Friday Collections for the Church in Jerusalem.
With every good wish and God’s blessing
The Rt. Rev’ d C. Leopold Friday
Bishop of the Windward Islands
