Since parishioners are unable to attend the Holy Week ceremonies in person, there is an invitation this year to mark the different days of Holy Week in the home. It is suggested that families place a piece of greenery on their front door on Palm Sunday, that they create a sacred space at home and place a jug, bowl of water and towel in it to mark the symbolic washing of feet on Holy Thursday, place a cross or crucifix in it on Good Friday, and place a lighted candle in a front window of the house on Holy Saturday night.

 

 Please note:   For those without internet access, we have added also the times of the ceremonies for Holy Week which will be broadcast on RTE radio and television in the Parish News Link click here

 

The National Centre for Liturgy have posted some wonderful resources for family prayer during Holy Week on their home page :
http://www.liturgy-ireland.ie/   Called "Bringing Holy Week Home" - it provides great support for families during this time of lockdown.

 

Sacrament of Reconciliation: A number of people have contacted the parish in recent days to request the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession). This is understandable, particularly in preparation for Holy Week and Easter. However, given the present extraordinary circumstances where everyone is obliged to stay at home and ‘physical distancing’ is mandatory, the Church is unable to provide the celebration of the sacraments in the normal way, including the sacrament of Confession. For the moment, while we might not have the immediate assurance of the Sacrament in the priest’s words: “I absolve you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,” we do have the assurance of Christ’s words: “Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name.” If you desire to celebrate the sacrament of Confession, simply pray to God, asking for forgiveness for your sins, and say an Act of Contrition, with the true intention to confess your sins to a priest as soon as you are able, so that you might be healed and fully reconciled. Let us look forward in hope to the time when the present crisis has passed and we can once again resume normal Church life, including the celebration of the sacraments.   Further information available here

Prayer for a Pandemic by Cameron Bellm

May we who are merely inconvenienced

Remember those whose lives are at stake.

May we who have no risk factors

Remember those most vulnerable.

May we who have the luxury of working from home

Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.

May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close

Remember those who have no options.

May we who have to cancel our trips

Remember those that have no safe place to go.

May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market

Remember those who have no margin at all.

May we who settle in for a quarantine at home

Remember those who have no home.

As fear grips our country,

let us choose love.

During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,

Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors. Amen.
