Good Shepherd Sunday & Mother’s Day

Angelic voices of children rang through the church welcoming the procession as it made its way to the altar on the beautiful morning of Good Shepherd Sunday which also coincided with Mother’s Day.

The unique celebration was animated by the Children in Liturgy Ministry, assisted by senior members of the choir. The children had practiced and prepared for the celebration months ahead, lending their talents in commentating, proclaiming the Word, singing and taking turns to play musical instruments. Father Philip proudly commended them for a job well done and hoped that these ‘little lambs’ would continue serving the church at every possible opportunity!

During the homily, Father explained that a Good Shepherd leads, feeds, nurtures, comforts, corrects, and protects his flock - responsibilities every Church leader must aspire to.

Why?

  • Jesus is both the glorified Lamb and the Shepherd.
  • His followers will know the unending joy of victory and have a share in everlasting life

How?

  • Be good sheep
  • Hear and follow the voice of our Shepherds
  • Receive the spiritual food
  • Cooperate with our pastors; encourage and pray
  • Unite with our fellow parishioners
  • Pray for vocations to the priesthood & the consecrated life

Father Philip also offered a special blessing for all mothers, present at the end of mass. He asked the congregation to • Cherish our mothers • Hug and kiss them • Honour and pray for them.

About Good Shepherd Sunday

Occurs on the fourth Sunday in the Easter Season. The name derives from the gospel reading for the day, which is taken from the tenth chapter of John's Gospel. In this reading, Christ is described as the "Good Shepherd" who lays down his life for his sheep.

About Mother’s Day

A day when we honour motherhood and shower our mothers with all the love and recognition they truly deserve. The celebration of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honour of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother's Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday”, on the fourth Sunday of Lent.



Colossians 3:23-24

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,
as though you were working for the Lord and not for people.
Remember that the Lord will give you as a reward what he has kept for his people. For Christ is the real Master you serve.
