Today’s liturgy shows us the height and depth of Jesus’ life, from the triumphal entry into Jerusalem to his death on the cross a short time later. Paul’s letter alludes to the victory of Easter and Christ’s equality with God; Holy Week holds up to our contemplation the perfect obedience of this man who will die an abject death before being exalted as Lord of all creation. His good works are repaid with ill, much as Isaiah’s servant song shows the ministry of God’s disciple interrupted by persecution. Both the first reading and the psalm describe prophetically Jesus’ suffering, and both conclude with an expression of enduring trust in God’s help. According to Matthew and Mark, Jesus prayed this psalm as he hung on the cross. Its cry expresses abandonment, but its ending asserts resolve to continue the work of praise in the assembled community. Every Eucharist associates us with Christ as he offers his sacrifice in our midst and continues his perfect praise of the Father.


 We have received approval to proceed with the paving of the parking lot to the west of the church. This will provide us with an additional 76 parking spots. A sketch will be posted shortly in the Narthex of what the parking lot will look like. We have started submission of applications to the city for the permits to proceed. We expect to receive these permits by mid April at which time we will go out to tender for construction. We expect the construction to occur during the summer and look to have it completed by the end of September.

This collection is requested by the Holy See to help maintain the Church’s holy places in the Holy Land, so important to the faith of Christians everywhere , and also to support the faithful who struggle to survive under political and economic oppression and persecution. 

This Pontifical Collection will be taken during the Good Friday celebration on April 7 2023. Those unable to attend the service, or who prefer to contribute online , may do so by Interac e-transfer or Canada Helps by visiting www.commissariat.ca/supporting-us.

They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.
