Parish News for the 5th Week of Lent

March 23, 2023 by James Elston in Weekly News

This Sunday is Passion Sunday and so begins Passiontide, the final two weeks of Lent. To mark this sombre season the images of Jesus and the Saints in church will all be veiled in purple, a traditional custom symbolising the hidden divinity of Christ as he approaches his time of suffering. Click here for the scripture readings.

Holy Week
Begins with Palm Sunday on the 2nd April. Each day mass will be celebrated with music taking us deeper into the mystery of our salvation. Click here to find out how you can make time for this beautiful and important week.
