Message from Fr. Jim from the front of the Bulletin



Palm Sunday begins our entry into Holy Week.

We journey with Jesus during his last days. Our pilgrimage begins with the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, when Jesus was proclaimed as

the “Son of David” and greeted with chants of “Hosanna”.

This is what we celebrate today, the triumphal entry of the Lord into

our community and into our lives. Each Sunday we celebrate the

Paschal Mystery, the death and resurrection of Jesus.


Holy Week is the time in which we breakdown the Paschal Mystery into its constituent parts. Holy Thursday is the celebration of the Lord’s Supper.

We commemorate the institution of the sacrament of the Eucharist.

The Eucharist, as it is described in the document Sacrosanctum Concillium

is “summit and source of all worship and Christian life” (No 47.).

The Eucharist is central to our Catholic faith, it is the sacred meal which binds us in community and which sustains us spiritually.


Good Friday is the commemoration of the of the Lord’s passion.

We remember his turmoil in Gethsemane, his arrest and trial, his brutal

torture at the hands of his Roman tormentors, culminating in his shameful death as a criminal on the cross. In venerating the cross, an instrument of death and humiliation, we acknowledge the cross as the means of our

salvation through the death of Jesus.


The Easter Vigil is the climax of the Triduum.

At the Easter Vigil we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. He has now

become our risen Lord. He has left the tomb and doing so, leaves behind

the trappings of his burial. He is among us as the Redeemer, the conqueror

of sin and death. We glory in Christ crucified and Christ risen.


Our Redeemer lives.
