FROM FR TIM
Laetare Sunday: Today we reach the halfway point in Lent and the Church invites us to take a breather. The entry antiphon is from Isaiah and tells us to “rejoice…be joyful…exult.”
Happily it is also Mothering Sunday, so we greet all our mothers and thank you not just for all you do, but for the people you are… I hope the family spoils you today!
Visiting the housebound: This year the priests are hoping to visit all those who are housebound in our parishes and offer them the sacraments. It has not been possible to organise the Anointing Masses, organised by the SVP, in Lent this year, so we will celebrate those Masses during the Easter Season.
The funeral of Sr Catherine Hughes SND will be on Thursday 30 March at 1.15pm.
In her time Sister Catherine was Superior General of the Notre Dame Sisters, Provincial in this country, and Principal of the College in Mount Pleasant.
