Faith Facts this Week-

The Good Friday collection for the holy places is taken up in every Catholic parish in New Zealand.  The practice originated in 1887 when Pope Leo XIII directed that a Good Friday collection be taken up in every parish church throughout the world for the support of the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land.  The Franciscans have been entrusted with the maintenance of sacred sites in the Holy Land since 1217. Find out more about the Collection for the Holy Places by clicking on the link above. 

We celebrate two feast days for Joseph: March 19 for Joseph the Husband of Mary and May 1 for Joseph the Worker. March 19 has been the most commonly celebrated feast day for Joseph, and it wasn't until 1955 that Pope Pius XII established the Feast of "StJoseph the Worker" to be celebrated on May 1.

God Bless
