Confession Times during Holy Week
Remember that it is a Precept of the Church that all Catholics should go to confession at least once a year, at Easter or thereabouts. In order to help you to make your “Easter Duties” there will confessions this week on Monday-Thursday from 12noon-2.00pm and from 4.00pm-6.00pm. And then on Good Friday, there will be confessions from 4.30pm-7.00pm.
Good Friday is a Day of Fasting and Abstinence
Remember that Friday is a day of fasting and abstinence which means that all Catholics are obliged to abstain from meat, and all adults between 16 and 65 are obliged to fast.
At the Easter Vigil this year we will receive ten people into the Church: Rowena, Jolanda, Carmen, Timothy, Justin, Tom, Laura, Jonathan, Elizabeth and John. This is the end of a long journey of faith for them and I ask you to keep them all in your prayers this week as they prepare to make this important step in their lives. I encourage you also to try to attend the Easter Vigil which is a beautiful celebration.
God bless you all,
Fr Patrick, Fr Jamie, Deacon Peter and Sister Mary Simone.
