Parish Notices for Holy Week

  1. There will be a choir practice before Triduum on Sunday (tomorrow/today) 13th April at 3 pm. All musicians are also invited. So that together we can make our celebration beautiful. 
  2. At the Last Supper Meal, Jesus broke bread and shared with his disciples. Our Holy Thursday tradition we are encouraged to bring a loaf of bread which will be distributed to the poor and needy. 
  3. Twice yearly, the collection at Christmas and Easter Masses only throughout the Archdiocese are pooled. It is from this collection that the priests& administrators serving in our archdiocese receive their monthly income.  Please give generously.
  4. Attention! To celebrate St. Joseph our Protector and to build bridges between us we would like to invite you to participate in Run – 5K run from St. Michaels Parish to St. Joseph Church – early in the morning on Saturday (3rd of May). A beautiful opportunity to have fun together, to burn something and do something positive as the entire family. The event is organized by our two parishes: St. Michaels and St. Joseph. On the Catholic News stand you may still collect the registration form; you may leave there or in the sacristy filled forms. The cost is 40$ per person. Children younger than 10 years old and above 70 years old – free. Please come and run and help us to organize – again – water, snacks, and prizes. 
  5. The schedule for the Holy Triduum of the Passover of the Lord:
    • Holy Thursday: Holy Mass of the Last Supper of the Lord at 6.30 pm; After the mass: Vigil led by TVY to 10 pm;
