Please note as we enter the Easter Triduum, there will be no morning Masses on Holy Thursday, Good Friday or Easter Saturday.
ADORATION – HOLY THURSDAY
Following the Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper, the Blessed Sacrament is transferred to the Altar of Repose. During this time, we are invited to remain at the altar in silent prayer of adoration until midnight. At midnight, the Eucharist is removed from the altar and reserved until the Easter celebrations begin with the Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday.
GOOD FRIDAY STATIONS OF THE CROSS
The Stations of the Cross are at 10am on Good Friday, 19 April at St Francis Xavier Church. Please gather inside the Church. This year it is an outdoor event, please wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen, hats or an umbrella. Please take care in the carpark as sections will be cordoned off as we will be moving around the grounds of the Church.
GOOD FRIDAY COLLECTION
The Good Friday Collection is used to provide practical support to Christians, providing welfare assistance in areas such as health, education, employment and housing. Donations are also use to help maintain 74 churches and shrines associated with the life of Jesus. Please remember the Christians of the Holy Land on Good Friday as we pray that peace and harmony will become a reality in the birthplace of Jesus. Thank you for your generosity.
