Holy Week and Easter 2018

As we approach Holy Week and Easter we accompany Jesus of Nazareth on his journey towards the cross and beyond all that threatened to diminish him. As we listen to the stories of our faith and share at his table we remember his ministry, passion and death.

We pray that you will find the pilgrimage from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday a deepening and enlivening experience.
