Holy Week

The Easter Triduum started last night with Holy Thursday. During the service we were celebrating the last supper and the washing of the feet.

This is my body, which is given for you, do this in memory of me.

- Luke 22:19
All the churches in Almonte were part of "walk of the cross" through town starting at 12:00 noon today. The walk ended at our church. We went inside for a message from Father Lindsay and some singing.

Good Friday - Our Lord's Passion. A solemn Mass was at 3pm today after the walk of the cross.

"Father, into your hands I place my spirit".

- Luke 23:46

We look forward to the Easter Vigil at 8pm tomorrow. We will celebrate our Risen Lord!

"And He departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here."

- Saint Augustine

Usually, we go to Sunday Mass on Easter Sunday but this year we are going to visit Cedarview Alliance in Barrhaven. It's the church were my Uncle is now the pastor. We haven't been before so we are looking forward to going.
