The Great Week

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail


As we all move closer to Holy Week - the 'Great Week' of our faith - I would like to encourage you to get involved.

Firstly, please give serious consideration to trying to make each of the major ceremonies for Holy Week:

  • Palm Sunday Mass
  • Mass of the Lord's Supp er on Holy Thursday evening
  • The Commemoration of the Lord's Passion of Good Friday afternoon and
  • Easter Vigil on Hol y Saturday evening

This might mean thinking about how family and work timetables can be re-arranged. Likewise, perhaps you can give some time and energy to assisting with the preparations: especially the music and choir (see the info about practices in the bulletin), and the cleaning, setting up and decorating of the Church.

In the meantime, happy progressing in your Lenten renewal!
