MOTHERING SUNDAY AND BEYOND MARCH 14TH
This coming Sunday we invite you to join us for our special Sunday Parish Mass March 14th. 10:00AM.
Tuesdays in Lent: Mass at 6:00pm with Homily
Wednesdays in Lent is our Zoom Lent Course at 7:00pm entitled “By His wounds.”
Fridays in Lent: The Stations of the Cross at 12 Noon
On this Mothering Sunday we hear the words of Jesus from the cross in John 19 and we see Jesus’ compassion and his concern for his mother. Entrusting Mary and the beloved disciple to one another as mother and son, Jesus teaches us that the community of his disciples needs to have that same spirit of mutual care and concern. He is inviting us to acknowledge a responsibility for one another, whether or not we have ties of biological kinship. What (perhaps small) step can our church take this Lent to be a community which nurtures those who lack security and love – whatever their age and background?
You will see below, the image of Our Lady of the Protecting Veil. In the tenth century, a man called Andrew, had a vision of the Holy Virgin as the God bearer praying for the world while spreading her veil over the Church he was in. This vision became one of the most beloved representations of Mary in the Eastern Church. Mary, the Mother of God, Mary, the spiritual mother of all Christians, looks after and protects all her children.
Thursday March 25th is Lady Day or the Feast of the Annunciation. Will you join for us a special mass at Noon?
