So Many Things to Write About During Holy Week
Last week we had a Red Cross Blood Drive. Our goal was 230 and we received 242 units of blood. Thank you to all the generous donors who support this worthy cause. You truly are life-savers.
Now a bit about our Holy Week schedule at the Motherhouse. We will have Morning Prayer at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On Holy Thursday, at 4:30 we Sisters have an Agape prayer service with our evening meal at 4:30 p.m. This Agape meal consists of prayers and songs in remembrance of the Last Supper. Our Eucharist will be at 7 p.m. followed by Adoration until 10 p.m.
There are a number of activities on Good Friday. At 9:30 we have a silent Peace Walk through Little Falls. I always find this a very prayerful event. (If it is raining or snowing we will have the event inside with signs indicating the places and people we pray for at the various stops.) Then we will have Stations of the Cross both inside and outside at 11 a.m. Good Friday services are at 2 p.m.
Easter Vigil services on Holy Saturday are at 8 p.m. followed by refreshments in St. Francis Hall. Come join us if you would like. Mass on Easter Sunday is at the usual 8:30 a.m. time.
April 29th, the St. Francis Community Chorale will have a concert in Sacred Heart Chapel at 7 p.m. It is always a treat to hear this group. They are so good. I invite you to come and enjoy.
The next evening, April 30th, is the Spaghetti Supper from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Come for some very good food. We also serve meatless spaghetti sauce, if you’d wish it.
Then on Sunday, May 1st, at 3 p.m. the two Strings Orchestras will have a concert in Sacred Heart Chapel at the Motherhouse. This also is a wonderful event. Come and enjoy.
I wish you a good rest of Holy Week. May your faith be strengthened in your prayer and meditations on the events commemorated this holiest week of the year.
Peace and many blessings,
Sister Mary Lou
