FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK HOLY INFANT AND SHEPHERD OF THE HILLS PARISHES.
HOLY WEEK CELEBRATION OF APRIL 2020.
We will begin the celebration of Holy Week on Palm Sunday April 5th 2020. This will lead us to the celebration of the Triduum, Holy Thursday this is the celebration of the Lord’s Supper or the Eucharist as well as the Ministerial Priesthood, Good Friday, or the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday.
The Holy Week celebrations are clouded by social distancing due to the covid-19 pandemic. Let us continue to pray for God’s divine intervention for an end of the pandemic and cure of all the infected.
I am very glad to inform you that Palm Sunday Mass will be live streamed from Shepherd of the Hills Church, beginning at 9.00 am.
The Palms will be blessed and positioned at the foyer for any parishioner to pick. There will be sanitizers in place.
For all our friends who may not be able to pick one from the Church, please put a green branch at your door post as a sign of welcoming Jesus in your home.
Please, accept my thanks to you all who have mailed your generous offering and contributions by mail or directly to the office. We are in great need of everyone’s contribution as we need to pay for the utility and maintenance services. Please find attachment of the financial situation of our respective Parish for the last month as prepared by our book-keeper Alice.
We can mail our contribution, mail it by post, or by online giving through the Diocese of Richmond; https//offering.richmonddiocese.org.
Finance Council may also make available online giving for future use.
