FFFOur Faith Friends Programme continues on Tuesday 28th March.
For weeks before their Confirmation, the young people prepare under the guidance of Teachers, Parents, Priests, and Faith Friends.
Who are Faith Friends? They are a small group of parishioners who act as special friends to Confirmation children. The Faith Friends follow a structured program and they meet with the Confirmation children to help them prepare for the Sacrament that they are about to receive, encouraging them to speak about their lives, ambitions and worries, showing them how unique and special each one of them are and to recognise and celebrate their gifts and talents.
Faith Friends are also involved in the Ceremony of Light.

The History of Mother’s Day

mothers-day 201In the Roman religion the Hilaria festival was held in honour of the mother goddess Cybele and it took place during mid-March. As the Roman Empire and Europe converted to Christianity, this celebration became part of the liturgical calendar as Laetare Sunday, the fourth Sunday in Lent to honour the Virgin Mary and the “mother church”.

During the sixteenth century, people returned to their mother church for a service to be held on Laetare Sunday. This was either a large local church, or more often the nearest Cathedral. Anyone who did this was commonly said to have gone “a-mothering”. In later times, Mothering Sunday became a day when domestic servants were given a day off to visit their mothers and other family members. It was often the only time that whole families could gather together, since in other days they were prevented by conflicting working hours.

Nowadays Mothers Day is celebrated as a day that honours and pays tribute to mothers. It is customary to spoil your mum on this day with gifts and help with everyday chores.
