From the Principal

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Zechariah   |   9:9

This Sunday we celebrate Palm Sunday, which marks the beginning of Holy Week. The celebration recalls Jesus riding on a donkey, making his humble entry into Jerusalem. The people greeted Jesus, waving palm leaves and covering his path with palm branches: The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!" (Matthew 21:9)

The shouts of "Hosanna" literally meant "save now," and the palms had been traditionally used on festive occasions as symbols of goodness, of peace and of eternal life.

Holy Week concludes on April 17 this year, Easter Sunday. Easter commemorates the resurrection of Jesus, which occurred on the third day following his crucifixion by the Romans. Through Christ’s resurrection, we see how life triumphs over death, how good triumphs over evil, and how hope triumphs over despair. Let’s pray in his name for all those in our world who are suffering today, let us pray that peace triumphs over war and love triumphs over hate.

Happy Easter to you and all family. Have a safe and enjoyable break!
