Dear friends,
Two weeks from today is Holy Thursday, when we will celebrate the mass of the Lord’s Supper at 7pm and recall the first mass. As you probably remember, after the mass the Blessed Sacrament is taken from the church to the ‘altar of repose’ (Martha and Mary room) where it is kept for some time. This represents Jesus’ time in the Garden of Gethsemane. Traditionally people stay there for a few hours so that there are people with the Blessed Sacrament, accompanying Jesus during his time of suffering in the Garden. This year we would like to get people to commit to half an hour, or an hour, so that we can be sure there will be people there. If you would be willing to do this, please let us know in the office. We will need people from after mass (aprox 8pm) to 10pm. You can commit to 30 minutes or an hour.
God bless you and have a great day,
Fr. Murchadh
