Holy Week and Easter

posted 28 Mar 2018, 21:34 by Michelle Virgona
Holy Week is the lead up to the most important feast of the Church Year. The purpose of Holy Week is to relive and participate in the Passion of Jesus Christ. The days of Holy Week are: 
- Palm Sunday (or Passion Sunday), the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem
- Holy Thursday (or Maundy Thursday), the institution of Communion and the betrayal by Judas
- Good Friday, the arrest, trial, crucifixion, death and burial of Jesus Christ
- Holy Saturday, the Sabbath on which Jesus rested in the grave
- Easter Sunday is the day that Jesus rose from the dead

Easter is, above all, a time of hope. Jesus has overcome death, overcome all ultimate failure, and is risen from the dead. Please join us in celebrating together this Easter season by attending the Parish liturgies. Please refer to the list of Mass times in the Parish:

Good Friday Service: HNM 3.00pm 
Easter Vigil: HNOM 7.00pm followed by Supper. (Please bring a plate. The Parish will provide liquid refreshments)
Easter Sunday: HNOM: Masses 8.00 & 10.00am SPC: Mass 9.00am (Note: No Sunday evening Mass)
