Notre Dame Cathedral: on Tuesday, St Joseph’s Mission Anglophone, opened a fund to collect for the restoration of Notre Dame following the deadly fire of Monday night. Already donations have been received from USA, Ireland and other countries. Next Sunday, Divine Mercy, a second collection will be taken after Holy Communion at all Masses at St Joseph’s. If you wish to avail of French tax relief, please mark your donation cheque ‘ADP’. During Lenten Project you have been outstanding by a generosity that is truly outstanding. So far, you have donated € 20,997.60; and the final collection for the Lenten Project will be at all the Easter Masses. Then the total will be sent to l’Oeuvre d’Orient. This shows that our church community is not supporting either Notre Dame or people in need. The Gospel calls us not to an either/or but to both/and. Your great generosity is a powerful witness.
8.30 a.m. resumes and Easter Monday.
Thanks to Fr James Sweeney, C.P. for being among; he leaves us on Sunday
