To mark June as the month of the Sacred Heart, the parish begins a series of five short videos from our Church. The videos reflect on the wounds of Christ and our wounds. The total giving of Christ – “Last Supper” – “Calvary”. Our giving is of a more limited variety but it is, however, in communion with the giving of Christ. The first video focuses on the Sacred Heart window in the sanctuary. Please click here to see this video.
On the Feast of the Sacred Heart we continue our Wounds in the Church videos. We look at the Stations of the Cross. The Stations of the Cross illustrate with great intensity the literal wounds and scars in our church with all the little damages and scratches and missing pieces and missing colour. The Stations of the Cross direct us to the wounds of Christ who suffered for us and all who suffer from wounds and hurts, violence and abuse. Each Station is a drama on this same theme.

John the Baptist in time points to and baptises Jesus. Through baptism we become members of the Church. Our third short video during the month of June speaks of five wounds of the Church. In our Parish Pastoral Plan 2020-25 we want to offer an open hand to people hurt by the Church. How can wounds caused by the Church itself be healed? We pray for forgiveness and to forgive.
