FROM FR TIM
HOLY WEEK: Each year I encourage you to do all you can to celebrate the great liturgies of the coming week. They are unique and provide us with wonderful opportunities to deepen our faith in the mystery of salvation, accompanying Christ through his Passion so that we are ready to rejoice in his Resurrection again on Easter Sunday. In advance I want to thank all of you – catechists, readers, ministers, servers, musicians, singers, sacristans, flower arrangers, parishioners – for the trouble you take to ensure that our celebrations are so memorable.
ARCHBISHOP MALCOLM’S VISITATION: Now that the Archbishop has visited both parishes I want to extend my thanks to all of you for making him so welcome and ensuring his visits were such joyful occasions. Last Sunday evening at Bishop Eton, it struck me that here was a perfect illustration of what we are told in the Acts of the Apostles: “Paul and Barnabas went from town to town putting fresh heart into the disciples.” Archbishop Malcolm certainly put fresh heart into our parishes and our Redemptorist Community and we are immensely grateful to him.
RECONCILIATION: Please remember that if we wish to celebrate this Sacrament it is recommended that we do so before the Mass of the Last Supper on Thursday evening, when the Easter Triduum begins.
By the end of this Sunday I will have spoken over the past few weeks at every Mass about this Sacrament and hope that this has been helpful.
Our Reconciliation Services are on Monday 26 March at 7.30pm in St Mary’s and Tuesday 27 March at 7.30pm in Bishop Eton.
Priests will also be available after this week’s Masses and of course you may always call at the monastery and ask for a priest at any reasonable time.

Adoremus National Eucharistic Pilgrimage & Congress 2018
Eucharist is… thanksgiving
When we give thanks at Mass, the past is renewed, the present is transformed, and the future is made already present. In this thanksgiving, hope is generated by recalling past mercies. What we know from the past of the power and love of God gives us confidence in the continued mercy of God despite whatever may be going on in our lives to try us.
Please check out all the posters in the porch for extra events, courses and information. Also check out the parish website for many more links.
