You will have noticed at Mass this past weekend that all of the statues in the church have been veiled, including the crucifix but not the Stations of the Cross. This simple, symbolic act is a reminder to us that, as we draw closer and closer to Holy Week and Good Friday, our attention should shift and focus solely on the Lord's Passion. We meditate again on what Our Lord suffered for us, what He endured for love of us. The use of purple in particular refreshes in us of the call to repentance and to examine our conscience.
This week on Friday at 7:30pm we have our parish reconciliation service. If you haven't been to confession in a long while please do come, don't feel as though cannot return, you will be welcomed warmly back by the Lord and if you feel a little...'rusty' the priest will be more than happy to guide you through.
