This is Holy Week

Today is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week. Palms will be blessed at all Masses. The 10.30am Mass will begin in the Haydock Centre with a Solemn Procession outside to the main entrance of the church.

We enter into the ‘Great Week’ in the liturgical year. We celebrate the mysteries of Our Lord’s Passion, Death and Resurrection. Over the Triduum the key celebrations are the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Maundy Thursday at 7pm, the Solemn Celebration of the Passion on Good Friday at 3pm and the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday at 7pm. These three celebrations really form one celebration of our Salvation in Christ.

Please try to attend all three, if you possibly can.

Every Blessing for Holy Week. Fr. John
