This is the greatest week in the Church’s year.  We call it Holy Week because Jesus made it holy by his death. He died because of human evil and human sinfulness.  Since we are all sinners, each of us can truthfully say that we had a hand in his death.  But we must never forget that he died for love of us.  We celebrate Jesus’ Resurrection that we might have a new hope and new life.


All notices for the Newsletter to be left in before 5.00p.m. on Thursdays please.
