EASTER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FEAST DAY OF ALL FOR THE ZULU PEOPLE
t’s even greater than Christmas!
Holy Week on the Missions is filled with prayer, processions and enactment of Palm Sunday … the carrying of the cross, vigils, stations of the cross, and more.
And then comes the glorious celebration of the Risen Christ; the singing rings out over the hills and valleys from every mission church and outstation.
If awareness of the blessings in your life – and your sacrifices during Lent combine to create an Easter offering, please will you make that offering to the Zulu Missions?
Many rural people have to make sacrifices every day … all through the year. When money is tight, a loaf of bread, some candles to provide light at night, a small packet of tea or a bar of soap are luxuries.
Yet still they count their blessings – and joyfully give thanks for the greatest blessing of all – the gift of eternal life which will be celebrated at Easter.
And there is the extra joy of receiving new Catholics into the Church … something that comes from your support of the Missions. By helping us take the faith into the furthest corners of our Archdiocese, you bless more lives than you can possibly know.
So please will you make your contribution today in celebration of the glorious feast of Easter?
It’s support like yours, that keeps our Mission doors open to all who hunger for the food of this world, and for the ‘food of life’ in Jesus Christ.
And if you let us know of your special intentions we’ll include these in our Easter mass for Mission friends.
May the Risen Christ bless you for your kindness.
WE ARE HERE FOR YOU
If you would like us to pray for your special intentions, please list them on the form below for inclusion in our monthly Mass for friends of the Missions.
There are times when we feel weary, sad, confused or afraid. And then there are times when we burst with joy and thankfulness. Our selection of prayers and readings help you talk to God in good times and bad.
