Blessings of Palms

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I have received from CIC a total of 10 pcs of palms. They are more than what I need for the symbolic blessing of palms on Palm Sunday. Some of you may want to have your palms blessed. Please send them to the Church. Pass the palms to the guard at the gate. Deadline is Saturday 4th April 12pm. The two pictures show how you should prepare the palms if you want them blessed.

palm leaves

  1. Clean the palms.
  2. Leave some holding space at the “stem handle” (petiole) so that they can be soaked in water to preserve their green colour.
  3. Write your name and mobile Nr and attach it at the top end of the palm leave so that I can contact you personally to come and collect the palms—at a time that is convenient.

I hope this is helpful.

God bless you all.
Padre

Rosary & Adoration

  1. The Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Mary living in our parish will have an adoration before the Blessed Sacrament in their private chapel from 6 am to 6pm from today till 31st March. They take turns amongst themselves to pray.

Public Masses may be "banned" but here is our Parish Priest celebrating his private Mass for the intentions of the Cathedral.

Our Parish Priest praying the Rosary in tandem with the Parish Weekend Rosary initiative. Since we cannot gather for public Masses, at least we can collectively ask Our Lady to intervene on our behalf for the end to this pestilence.
Prayer and fasting are powerful reminders that all is dependent  on God.

Fasting And Abstinence

Fasting is to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by all Catholics who are 18 years of age but not yet 59. Those who are bound to fast may take only one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted if necessary, to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted.

Abstinence from meat is to be observed by all 14 years or older on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and on all Fridays.
