Notices for Week of 2 April 2023

Notices: Passion Sunday, 2 April 2023

Good day dear friends, 

Today is Palm or Passion Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week, the most sacred time in the Christian year, the time when we begin reflecting on the transformative suffering of Jesus. Our suffering is non negotiable. We suffer. And our suffering will transform us. It will either make us bitter and miserable, or it make us more compassionate and alive. Like Jesus, may our suffering make us more compassionate and alive, and may we project this loving Spirit to all those around us. 


Father Gerald+

Chad Crocker has recently done some changes to our online output on our sound board, and the problem seems to be resolved. Dave Fitzepatrick has also been helping us out with our in house sound. Thank you’s to both for your much appreciated assistance.
