Palm Sunday & Holy Week (part one)




Two whole things to remember for tomorrow, Palm Sunday… to make things very hard for the congregation of the faithful!!


FIRST: DON’T FORGET TO PUT YOUR CLOCKS FORWARD ONE HOUR, or come to church at 9:30 if you can’t find the instruction book for how to re-set your alarm clock!


SECONDLY: Mass trundle season is under way! It’s too early for me to achieve sufficient head of steam for a rant about this, so please see previous numerous posts on the subject. Suffice it to say that it is the Liverpool Half Marathon tomorrow; yes it will mean road closures around the Cathedral; yes it will yet again start 250 yards from my front door; yes you should allow extra time (especially of you forgot to put your clocks forward!) if you either live in, or pass through the South of the city or the city centre.


Always provided that you have survived the above, herewith the details for the services for Palm Sunday:
