PALM CROSSES
 
Our Palm Crosses were made by the children in the Special Needs Unit at Ahotokurom, Ghana. The stigma of disability persists and without Ahotokurom these youngsters would not be able to attend school. The people of Ahotokurom remember us in their prayers today and ask you to remember them.

NEW STUDY FOR MOTHERS STARTS ON THE 3RD MAY.
 
Thursdays 10am-12 midday in Hartley Hall.  Letter to Women invites you to explore Pope John Paul II’s 1995 letter to all the women of the world. Written for the occasion of the Fourth United Nations Conference on Women, this letter demonstrates that whenever people gather to discuss what ails humanity, the voice of the Church should be there. This study reaffirms the dignity of all human persons as it upholds the special place women occupy in the family, the Church and the world. Letter to Women is the introductory book that sets the stage for all the outstanding studies in the Endow series.

Gospel Reflection Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion
 
This weekend we participate in the proclamation of the passion and death of Jesus according to the Gospel of Mark. In the extended version of this weekend’s Gospel reading, Jesus is at Gethsemane, praying to his Father, in much emotional distress. He knows he can save himself. He can escape over the Mount of Olives in the dead of night and make his way safely into the Judean desert. Instead, Jesus chooses obedience to his Father and waits for his persecutors. As Saint Paul puts it in the second reading, Jesus is “obedient to the point of death.” Jesus’ obedience is a lesson for those who are good stewards of their life in Christ. Let us reflect on how we might be more obedient to the will of God instead of our own will.
 
 
Were you there when you crucified your Lord
 
Where are you now ?
