SECOND COLLECTION EVERY WEEKEND DURING LENT is for the Bishop’s Lenten Appeal. GOOD FRIDAY collection is for the Holy Places.

Today we are beginning the best week in the whole liturgical year. Centuries ago it was called the ‘Great Week‘. Nowadays we Catholics call it ‘Holy Week‘. We follow Jesus every step of the way. We start with his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, On Thursday we will join him at table and receive the gift of himself in bread and wine. We remember his Passion and on Friday we stand beside his mother at the foot of the cross. On Saturday we will be quiet and silent around his tomb. And then on Easter Sunday with joy we will sing ‘Christ is Risen.’

Easter Egg Appeal

We are encouraged to give alms during Lent.  Help to spread the good news of the Resurrection of Jesus by donating marshmallow easter eggs to destitute children. The charity organisations of Caritas will distribute them with a message of hope on each box.  Please deliver to the collection box in the foyer of the Church or Parish Office.

VOCATION REFLECTION:

Blest are they who come in the name of the Lord. Am I being called to proclaim Jesus as Priest, Deacon, brother,  or sister? (Mark11: 1-10)

PRAYER FOR SOUTHERN AFRICA:

Merciful Father,

send forth your Spirit upon us the people of Southern Africa. May we hear anew the voice of Jesus Christ, inviting us to walk with him across the turbulent waters of our time: “Courage, it is I. Do not be afraid.” By the grace of the Holy Spirit empower us to bring comfort to the restless, hope to those who despair, healing to victims of violence, and reconciliation where there is division. May the Holy Spirit heal our families and communities. Grant us ethical and courageous leaders who put the good of the people before their own interest. We ask for your grace to guide us to speak the truth with courage, to act justly in all we do, to share with those in need and always and everywhere to respect your gift of life as we strive to proclaim the values of the Kingdom, in solidarity with all people of goodwill. We ask this through Christ Our Lord.  

Amen.
