Holy Week Ceremonies



Easter Offerings

(Envelopes & Collection) The Easter Offerings Envelopes are being distributed to homes in the Parish. These offerings are for the support of the priests of the Parish. We thank you for returning these envelopes to the Parish Office or placing them in the Collection Plate. Those who do not receive an envelope will have a chance to support the Parish Clergy at the Second Collection taken up after Communion at the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday Masses.

Readers and Ministers of Holy Communion needed

Thought for the week

The Lord has given each of us a disciples' tongue, a special gift that also brings with it a need to be responsible in its use. Do not betray your gift by using it to hurt those around you. Instead, listen carefully to the voice within you before speaking and when you do speak, be humble in your works about self and others.

(St John's Social Justice and Peace Committee).
