A beautiful reflection from Maria Forde..."may this reflection comfort you and offer you much-needed hope...."
Good Friday message from Father Greg.
Palm Sunday - Today we begin Holy Week where we journey with Jesus on his way of the cross and anticipate his Resurrection. The liturgy begins with the procession of palms to remind us of Jesus’ triumphant entrance into Jerusalem and the events of Jesus’ Passion in Matthew’s Gospel are proclaimed in the Liturgy of the Word, focusing particularly on the obedience of Jesus to the will of his Father where we can find reflections of ourselves and the ways in which we may sometimes respond to Jesus.
As we approach the last days of Lent during Holy Week, the sacrament of penance is usually embraced as a fitting conclusion to the penitential season of Lent. It offers the opportunity to enter into the paschal mystery with a heart and mind renewed.
This resource includes a set of leaflets which you may use to help you celebrate Holy Week at home.
We encourage families to pray together over the upcoming holy days.
