The precepts of the Catholic Church say that each catholic should participate in the Sacramental Penitential Rite and make confession of sins at least once a year. Beside regular Saturday confessions twice a year in Advent and Holy Week we have organized Penitential Rite with the opportunity for the private confessions. Please take opportunity to do it on monday or Tuesday in the evening in your respective church.

The CHRISM MASS (Holy Wednesday 7.00p.m.) is a special mass when the Holy Oils (Oil of Salvation, Oil of Chrism and Oil of the Sick) are blessed by the bishop.
During this celebration there will be a celebration of the Installation of 5 ACOLYTES for the candidates selected by the Bishop & Fr. Bernard. These are: Ian Slack and Ken Martin for the Co-Cathedral; Pierre Berry for Sandy Point, Joseph Edmead for Old Road and Jeff Fraites for Molineux church.

The EASTER TRIDUUM Celebration (Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, Passion of the Lord on Good Friday and Easter Vigil on Easter Sunday) should be treated as one celebration - (it starts with Opening Hymn on Thursday and ends with the Easter blessing after Easter Vigil, there is no ending hymn or blessing on Holy Thursday and no opening rites or blessing and recessional hymn on Good Friday celebration) This is the pinnacle of the Liturgical life of the church. All Catholics should make every effort to participate in the whole Easter Triduum Celebration.
