This Sunday, 25th March, is Palm Sunday and it marks the beginning of what we call ‘Holy Week’ in church. The times of the services are below:

Mass of the Lord’s Supper including the Washing of the Feet on Thursday 29th March at 7.00 p.m. at Saint Bede’s Church

Readings and Morning Prayers at 9:30am on Friday 30th March at Saint Augustine’s Church

Celebration of the Lord’s Passion on Friday 30th March at 3.00 p.m. at Sacred Heart Church

Ancient Service for the Burial of Christ on Friday 30th March at 7.00pm at Saint Augustine’s Church

Readings and Morning Prayers at 9:30am on Saturday 31st March at Sacred Heart Church

Easter Saturday Vigil Mass on Saturday 31st March at 8.00pm at Saint Augustine’s Church

Easter Sunday Mass on Sunday 1st April at 9.30am and 6.00pm at Saint Bede’s Church

These celebrations should be regarded as one event (The Easter Triduum) yet each is quite distinct. All are very moving and celebrated with great reverence and beauty. The mass of the Last Supper on Thursday is possibly the most poignant event in the whole year. We also have special liturgies at school next week to help the children understand, at their level, what happened in the last week of Jesus Christ on Earth. We think it’s important that children have a good understanding of what happened at Easter and what it means for us today.
