Sunday 2nd April 2017 | The 5th Sunday of Lent

posted Apr 1, 2017, 6:29 PM by Parish of The Holy Family
Next Sunday, 9 April is the start of Holy Week with the celebration of Palm Sunday. Just as we did last year, the first part of our liturgy, namely the Blessing of Palms will take place at the school for Paeroa and Morrinsville, and in the parish hall in Te Aroha. We will then have the procession going to the Church for the Mass.

Mass times for Holy Week are now available and are handed out today with the newsletters. I hope you can come to our Holy Week celebrations, especially our Liturgies on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil/ Sunday, to commemorate our Lord’s Passion Death and Resurrection.

I am away this week, so there will be no Masses. But there will be Liturgy of the Word with Communion. April 7 is the last Friday of Lent, and I invite you to take part in the Stations of the Cross in our churches. 

Let us pray for the success of ‘Setfree’ and for all young people who will be taking part in it next weekend.
