Dear Parishioners,

Christ has risen, Alleluia!

It is hard to believe, that we are already entering the Fifth Week of Easter. I wish to, once again, thank you for your prayers and continued support of our parish community; and even though we are still isolated, it is so wonderful, that we continue to maintain, a strong parish family – a family of faith and mutual support.
This Sunday, in a very special way, we remember our Mothers – those who have gone before us and those who are with us. We recognize and honour our Mothers, for the gift of their Vocation to Motherhood and the love, encouragement and support they give to our families. This Sunday, you will see white roses on the Altar and white roses beside the tabernacle – take a look at the bulletin for further details and for a wonderful section, to assist us, in celebrating this special day!
During the month of May, Pope Francis is encouraging us to pray the Rosary. Please join us for our Marian Devotions, following the Eucharist, Tuesday to Saturday.
I continue to celebrate Mass and the Divine Mercy Devotion, according to the schedule below, so I hope you will join us on Zoom. It is encouraging to see that more and more people are following us every day. It is a wonderful opportunity to pray together, but this time together also gives us an opportunity to show each other and tell each other that we want to be part of this faith family. For your convenience, I have again included the link and password for the online streaming:
