Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.

A beautiful Divine Mercy Sunday here at St. Patrick’s Parish. We had a fantastic bilingual Mass followed by a potluck lunch and cake in the Parish Hall for the Ordination Anniversary of Fr. Banka! Thank you to Father John for the beautiful homily in Spanish and English.

Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make the day joyful.

Thank you, Father Sunder, Father Sleevaraj, Father E. Suresh, Father Yesupadam, and Father S. Suresh for a wonderful Mass in honor of Father Banka.

Ever wondered about the Altar of Repose?

 

The altar of repose is a temporary altar where the Holy Eucharist, consecrated in the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, is reserved until the “Mass of the Pre-sanctified” on Good Friday. It is prepared at a side altar or some other suitable place. It should be decorated with all possible splendor such as rich hangings and beautiful flowers and lights.

Maundy Thursday is a day of exceptional devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, and the altar of repose is the place where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved for the love and aspirations of the faithful.

Let us all come to adore the Lord at the Altar of Repose.

Blessing to you all during this Holy Week.

Father Banka
