Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent. It is a season of penance, reflection, almsgiving, and fasting which prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday.


Last February 17, 2021, Rev. Fr. Dave Dominguez, MCCJ celebrated a simple Eucharistic Celebration at Manresa School chapel as we begin the season of Lent.

Fr. Dave, during his homily, highlighted that God is inviting us to “GO BACK” to the three important part of this season: (1) go back to the basics of life – fasting, (2) go back to the love in action - almsgiving, and (3) go back to intimacy with God - prayer. He then conclude that through our efforts and humility, we can make it to Easter, we can make it to celebrate the newness of God’s life as a gift for all of us.



The Eucharistic celebration was attended by the Family of St. Candida as it was streamed live MS Facebook page.
