MAY ALTAR 2020 SIDESHOT

 

 

Greeting for the Month of the Blessed Virgin Mary (May) from your priest Fr Ben

 

+B.V.M.

 

01.05.2020

 

May is one of the nicest times in the catholic calendar. Walking in the Easter light of the risen lord, we pay homage to Mary, mother of God and Mother of the Church.

 

Normally, we would have our May Procession after First Holy Communion Day.

Our May Altar would be constructed with the help and creativity of the school children and the magnificent hymn  “Bring flowers of the fairest” rings out.

 

Someone recently said that while COVID 19 has closed churches, God has opened Churches in the hearts of his faithful.

 

I have placed our May Altar at the door of the church, so that those, who in keeping with Government regulations, passing by, may pay a visit.

 

In your homes, like the Christmas Crib, you can create your own May Altar, and you can say the Hail Mary, the Rosary and other prayers.

 

Now is the time for us to draw on the great traditions that have been handed down to us.

 

May you all be placed under the blue mantle of Mary,

And

may Mary Mother of God and of the Church continue to be the Mother of this Parish,

 

Fr Ben
