Visale Catholic parish has joined other countries globally to commemorate Ash Wednesday this week.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lent season as a season of penance, reflection, and fasting which prepares us for Christ’s
Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
Stringer for SIBC for North West Guadalcanal John Toki reports, more than 500 Christians around Visale parish have gathered to receive ashes long Wednesday.
Mr Toki adds Christians are enlightened with wonderful messages of penance, reflection and fasting from the Parish Priest Fr. John Galwin in preparation towards Easter.
