FROM FR TIM
ARCHBISHOP MALCOLM is welcome to our parish today. He will celebrate all the Masses and help us with the First Reconciliation Service this afternoon for the children in the With You Always programme. If you wish to meet Archbishop Malcolm there will be coffee and tea served in the Fisher-More Hall after each Mass.
FEAST: Monday is the Feast of St Joseph.
There will be plenty of opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation before the Easter Triduum, which begins on Maundy Thursday.
There will be a Pastoral Area Reconciliation Service this Wednesday 21 March at 6.30pm in Hope University Chapel.
We will also have Reconciliation Services as usual in our two parishes at the beginning of Holy Week: Monday 26 March at 7.30pm in St Mary’s and Tuesday 27 March at 7.30pm in Bishop Eton.
Priests will be available after all the weekday Masses during these last two weeks of Lent and of course you may always call at the monastery and ask for a priest at any reasonable time on any given day.
EXPOSITION ON WEDNESDAY: 11.00am to 12 noon and 6.00pm to 7.30pm. The extra hour is in response to a request from parishioners.
COMINGS AND GOINGS: Fr Andrew is away with Marriage Encounter this weekend. After Easter a number of confrères will be away for lengthy spells and most of the community will be attending a meeting with Fr General in Perth at the beginning of May. I am flagging this up because we may have to adjust the regular timetable from time to time, though at present I am confident that we can cope.
