The Mass of the Lord’s Supper reminds us that, though many, we are all part of one Body in Church.


Some ideas for Holy Week at home:

Holy Thursday – Place a basin and a towel on the kitchen table, light a candle and say a prayer for all who give of their lives in service of family, community and our world at this difficult time.

Good Friday – at home Venerate a crucifix that you have or one on a Rosary Beads.

Holy Saturday & Easter Sunday: Light a candle for loved ones who have died and in support of all front-line workers.


There are two parades of Holy week:

First into Jerusalem from Bethany on the Sunday and Jesus being acclaimed as a political saviour. People hoped he would triumph, that his followers would put him into power and all hoped he would get rid of the Romans.

The second, from Jerusalem outside the walls of the city on the following Friday, to Calvary; a man in disgrace. A man carrying his cross, crowned with thorns, mocked and bullied and tortured and about to be killed. He had all sorts of followers – some like camp followers, some terrorists, some people on the make for themselves, or the ones who stayed till the end, like his mother, an aunt and a few of the followers. The others were at a distance, they would come back and would follow later to the end. We hope to be in that second parade. Palms are for waving in triumph, then they wither.

The cross is forever, for all time. The cross is his love, and as we follow in this parade we show our willingness to console him in love to the end. This is a holy week because a man like us and one of the Trinity gave his life.


Divine Mercy Novena

Divine Mercy Novena starts Good Friday and continues for nine days.



To flee the war in South Sudan, Awut gathered her beloved family. They ran for their lives. By the time they reached safety, they had lost nearly everything. Then Awut met another weary mother with even less. Awut welcomes Ajak and her children. They work tirelessly to keep their families alive. Without help, they could be lost completely. To survive and thrive, they need your help and your love this Lent, as love conquers fear.


Trócaire collection can be returned to Stamullen church (Cash only – please place in the Candle Shrines in the envelopes provided) or boxes can be returned to the parochial house.  (Please do not leave Trócaire boxes/cash in Julianstown Church).



Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You, Amen.

We are grateful to all who support our Parish especially in these difficult times when there is no Offertory Collection at Mass.
