Chaplain’s Notes

The High Point Of Our Faith

The term is racing towards the holidays and our Easter celebrations.

Though we often think of Christmas as a high point in our church celebrations, it is Easter that is central to our faith. Palm Sunday begins our Holy Week and culminates with the Triduum celebrations of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. I urge parents to guide your sons through this special time, sharing your own experiences and thoughts on what your faith means to you and attending the services available in all parishes.

The whole College community will gather on Thursday to share in a para‐liturgy focusing on the Stations of the Cross. A pageant, that brings to mind the agony of the passion and crucifixion, will be enacted by students.

If your Lenten preparation has been a bit sketchy, it is still not too late to make an extra effort to move closer to God through prayer and sacrifice.

You might like to share the following prayer when you sit down to dinner with your families:

God of the Resurrection, in this Lenten and Easter season,

may your light shine among us in a new way.
May it dispel darkness and guide us when we are lost.
May the warmth of your light nurture our souls
May the light of Christ bring healing and hope to our families,
Our school, our community and our world.

Amen
