It's Holy Week, where did Lent go? Please try and make an effort to come along to the Holy Week Liturgies, hard to believe that many Catholic go through life and never experience the blessings of the Holy Week Ceremonies. It would be lovely if the Church was full for every event. Do please try your best.
There are Confessions on Tuesday, and on Monday Fr. John Ahern is offering a Penitential Service with a few priests available for Confession including ourselves at 7-30pm.
If you can help on Wednesday after Mass to give the Church and vessels a good spring clean, that would be wonderful; likewise if you can help on Saturday morning after Morning Prayer to prepare the Church for the Easter Vigil that would be much appreciated. Please don’t forget there is no evening Mass on Easter Sunday and that the morning Mass is at 10-30am which like Christmas means that all our Churches in Burnage will begin our Easter Services together. Please remember our joint walk of witness which starts at Christ Church at 12 noon and ends with an open air service here at St. Bernard’s.
I am very pleased to tell you that Mrs Fiona Maguire has been appointed as new head teacher of our School. She comes which a lot of experience and enthusiasm and I am sure will continue the great traditions and high standards of our School.
If you are going away, safe journey, happy times and warm welcomes. Lets all remember this “By His wounds we have been healed” Many thanks for all you do. God Bless
