How was your week? Hopefully the weather will be clear this weekend so that we can have very nice weather for the Holy Week. Finally, this Sunday is Palm Sunday. It is also a time for us to enter into the Holy Week. The Masses and the Services for Holy Week are published in this bulletin and I highly recommend that all of you will try the best you can to attend these services even though it is not a Holy Day of Obligation on Holy Thursday and Good Friday. Remember that there are no morning Masses on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday...
