PALM SUNDAY – 10am Mass
Jesus enters the City of Jerusalem on a donkey. A big crowd welcomes him. They shout ‘Hosanna’, wave palm branches and lay them, along with their cloaks, on the ground for him.At our 10am Mass Fr Joe will bless palms as we together begin our journey into Holy Week.This year, why not take a branch from your garden/park and join Fr Joe on the webcam as he blesses the palms and as we read The Passion from St Matthew’s Gospel.
HOLY THURSDAY – 7.30pm mass
The Last Supper. Jesus and the Apostles gather together in the Upper Room for a special meal, The Last Supper.We remember the words Jesus said at that meal; ‘Do This in Memory of Me’.We recall that Jesus washed the feet of the 12 Apostles. Perhaps place a jug and bowl of water on a table nearby as you too join the Mass of the Last Supper at 7.30pm Mass.
GOOD FRIDAY – 3.00pm Mass
Celebration of the Lord’s Passion. We enter into the Passion through the account from St John’s Gospel and we recall the Way of the Cross. ‘Hosanna’…replaced by ‘Crucify Him’… and then finally, “It is accomplished’.In our homes we can venerate the Cross and remember again the love Christ showed for us when he stretched out his arms on that Cross.Join us for the ceremonies at 3.00pm Mass.
