Today marks the beginning of the most important few days in the Church’s calendar. Starting on Palm Sunday, we have been journeying through Holy Week whilst on our Easter break. We hope you have managed to take some time to enjoy time together, relax, rest as well as reflect on this special time of year.

During his Last Supper on the night before he died, Jesus gave us the gift of himself when he took bread and wine and said: This is my Body. This is my Blood. This is me. The Bread of Life. Food for the Journey.

As Catholics, we believe that part of Jesus is within each of us. We are his hands and his feet. With everything currently going on in our world today, remember that how we treat those closest to us is a reflection of how we expect to be treated. Take time today to think of those who give themselves to others so that they can live. To parents, to emergency workers, to aid workers, to those protecting the most vulnerable, thank you for all you do.

If you wish to attend mass today, the mass at All Souls Church begins at 7.30pm with solemn watching until midnight.
