Bulletin for the week of April 13, 2014 - and the Pastor's Corner

The Pastor’s Corner 

Today we celebrate Passion Sunday, also known as Palm Sunday. It marks the beginning of our remembrance this coming week of the events that give rise to our salvation, Jesus' Passion, Death and Resurrection. There are several special liturgies and other events this week. Please check the insert in this bulletin for our Holy Week schedule.

A special effort should be made by each of us to attend the major liturgies of the Easter Triduum, namely Holy Thursday Mass celebrating the Institution of the Eucharist, Good Friday Services commemorating our Lord's Passion, and the Easter Vigil.   Easter weekend often begins early in the secular world, with our children having off from school and many places of employment closing Good Friday for the Easter weekend. This extra time gives us the opportunity to attend the Triduum Liturgies.  A thought for reflection this week: If we can make time for other social events during the Easter Holiday, then should we not also be able to make time to attend the Easter Triduum Services? And if we cannot make the time, then do we need to examine our priorities?  We know what Jesus' priority was during this time.  God Bless, and may this week fill you with Christ's love, and the zeal to act on it!!
