On Sunday we celebrated Palm Sunday. We welcomed the children and their parents who will make their First Communion in May. They joined with the Family Mass group in the blessing of the palms by Fr Harry. Everyone processed into the Church to celebrate Mass waving their palms with enthusiasm, while singing along with the choir ‘Sing Hosanna.’ Once again the choir were in fine voice and the children and adults were at their best as they led us in prayer. In our prayers we referred to our good deeds for Lent and prayed that we will continue to try to be better people, that we will love and be kind to each other and know that Jesus will always be our special Friend.
PRAY FOR HOLY WEEK
Dear God. We are remembering some very important things in the life of Jesus this week. Help us to remember when the children and all the people praised Jesus with palm branches and shouts of “Hosanna.” Help us to remember how he asked us to remember him in the Bread and the Wine. Help us to remember how he washed his disciple’s feet as an example to us of being a servant. Help us also to remember how he died for us on the cross – how he gave his live so that we might have life. In Jesus’ name. Amen
