Holy Week / Easter
Holy Week is here!

We are very fortunate to have so many Holy Week activities at St Michael and St Charles Borromeo parishes.

Take time for prayer and reflection and time with the Lord.

Many of your Brother Knights will be participating in the live Passion Play at 6:30 pm on Good Friday at St Michael. You should definitely not miss it.

If you plan to attend the Easter Vigil, don't forget your bells and candles!


If you would like to go, call or email GK by tomorrow:

The 'Word' from our Sponsor

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
— John 3:16
Did you hear the one ...

A parishioner was in front of me coming out of church one day, and the priest was standing at the door as he always is to shake hands. He grabbed the parishioner by the hand and pulled him aside. The Pastor said to him, "You need to join the Army of the Lord!" The parishioner replied, "I'm already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor." Pastor questioned, "How come I don't see you except at Christmas and Good Friday?" He whispered back, "I'm in the secret service."
