Come and listen to Fr. Matthew as he will explain the Holy Week ceremonies.
Lent is the time we are meant to deepen our love and wonder at the mystery of the Redemption. It is during the Holy Week in particular that the Church invites us to contemplate this great mystery re-actualized for us in the Sacred Liturgy.
