HOLY WEEK AND EASTER CEREMONIES


PALM SUNDAY 

Since there will be no public celebration of Mass on Palm Sunday, we have decided to at least
make the Blessed branches available. The church gates will be open between 10am and Midday.
The blessed olive branches will be in baskets at the doors of the church . 

​We have been instructed by Pope Francis and Archbishop Comensoli that
the Holy Week Liturgies are to be celebrated but without the participation of the Faithful. Monsignor Portelli and Fr Tho will Conduct the Ceremonies at the following Times.
Holy Thursday, 9th April: Mass of the Lords Supper at 7pm

Good Friday, 10th April : Liturgy of the Passion at 3.00pm

Holy Saturday, 11th April: Easter Vigil at 7.30pm

You are invited to join us in prayer at these times.
