This year Holy Week will be very different to other years in that we can’t physically gather to celebrate the ceremonies. HOWEVER, we can still connect and gather as a faith commumity on-line. It is our intention to broadcast the Holy Week ceremonies from the Parish Church at the following times:
Palm Sunday (5th April) – Mass at 12 Noon
Daily Mass (Monday to Wednesday) – 9.30am
Holy Thursday (9th April) –
Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 6pm. Celebrant: Fr Seán Kelly OFM Cap – Provincial Minister of the Irish Capuchin Franciscan Friars.
Good Friday (10th April) :
12 Noon – Stations of the Cross
3pm – The Lord’s Passion
Holy Saturday (11th April) –
Easter Vigil Mass at 6pm with singing from Michelle Donnelly. Celebrant : Fr Martin Bennett OFM Cap – Parish Priest, Halston Street Parish.
Easter Sunday (12th April) –
Easter Sunday Mass at 12 Noon with singing from Michelle Donnelly.
We hope to have the webcam up and running for these ceremonies. I will share the link one the work is finished.
Another great resource comes from the Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin and hopes us all celebrate Holy Week at Home: Bringing-Holy-Week-Home
