A Message from Fr Dan: Holy Week 2023:

The celebration of Holy Week, the most sacred time in the Church’s year, begins on Palm Sunday with the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. Jesus enters Jerusalem as its king.

A Message from Fr Dan: Holy Week 2023:

This Lent, one year on, the world continues to be overshadowed by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the nightly reports of new and more terrible atrocities and suffering.


On the first Holy Week, Jesus experienced all the horrors of life, culminating in his crucifixion and death. The waving palm branches, the joy and…

This is the time every year when we make a special effort to fast, do penance, reflect on our faith and perform acts of charity.  In this way we prepare for the great celebrations of Holy Week; the Passion, Death and Resurrection…

A Message from Fr Dan: Prayer:

Many pray through thoughts, words, actions or before a crucifix. Some pray silently. Many like to gently sit or kneel before the blessed sacrament, spending quiet…

A Message from Fr Dan: Beauty:
