Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me. Amen.

PREPARING FOR HOLY WEEK

This year we reintroduce an age old custom in the Church. From this Sunday until the Easter Vigil the large Crucifix and the small Crucifix in the sanctuary will be covered with purple cloth. This is to focus our minds of what we are about to celebrate; Jesus' betrayal, suffering, death and Resurrection. 

The next two weeks are the most important in the Church's year. We unite ourselves with Christ in his suffering.
