Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this lovely Tuesday morning of Easter Week,
Fine weather prevailed all during Holy Week and our Church ceremonies drew attendances like never before. Our Parish church was crowded at 9pm Holy Thursday, 3pm Good Friday, and on Holy Saturday both for the Polish Mass in the afternoon and the Vigil Mass at 9 that night, again on Easter Sunday the crowds came for the 11.30 Mass. And our priests held confessions at every opportunity throughout. Again they were very well attended. Parish Priest Fr. Jack FitzGerald thanked all those who helped in so many ways to make our Easter so meaningful for everyone.
Next Sunday will see the Divine Mercy Devotions in our Parish Church starting with confessions at 2.30 followed by the Chapel of Mercy at 3pm. The Novena which started on Good Friday will end that day. May 1st.
Due to the painting of the Church there will be no choir until further notice.
