Parish Life Pictorial

Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining. As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.

1 Peter 4:8-10

Hi Everyone – A note about Palm Sunday and other things. Please see below.

The Transformation Zone
The purpose of Lent is to bring about spiritual change and transformation. The lockdown has provided new opportunities on our journey to the heights. Like you, we have also been spending much more time with each other due to the lockdown. This has caused some weird things to happen at OLM. Enter the Transformation Zone here, if you dare; see the video below.

Palm Sunday At Home Guides
Along with each weekend, we’ve been publishing a weekly “At Home Mass Guide” to help you in your prayer at home. Every guide contains practices to help you get the most out of your weekly viewing of the Mass. The At Home Mass Guide is available at this link and Masses are streamed here on Facebook

Q&A with the Fathers
Will be immediately following the Mass. Submit your questions here or post them on the Comments during the Live Feed. You can find last Sunday’s first Q&A here

Holy Week Schedule
The live stream schedule is located on our home page (just scroll down) or here
