A message from Fr Moses:

Lent calls us to an inward journey unto the core of our being where we are most ourselves; Lent offers us opportunities to engage life fully and meaningfully as Jesus did in the desert where he was exposed to temptations of all sorts for 40 days but did not sin. Through prayers, fasting and almsgiving, we engage our abnormal, upturned routine, struggles and unprecedented covid induced experiences in such a way that we are open to carry our cross alongside Jesus, bear the pains of rejection, and incomprehension; face the fear of isolation, and being infected. Aided by the Holy Spirit, who was a companion of Jesus in the desert, and who still speaks to us in the bible, we gradually come to realize how generous we can be simply by opening up our meanness before Jesus; how courageous we become simply by being vulnerable as Jesus was when He to whom all power belongs would be slapped and spat upon without Him snuffing out the lives of His torturers. In a sense, in no time we begin to see how intricately mixed is death and resurrection.

 In this year of St Joseph, may we grow through the intercession of St Joseph, in love, tenderness, understanding, creativity and compassion, hope and courage to follow the Spirit’s promptings.

 
We cannot thank you enough for all the sacrifices you have made to keep our Church opened through most of these challenging times; special thanks to the cleaners, the stewards, the live-streaming team, the Building Committee, the Children’s Liturgy Group and Catechists.

With love and prayers,
