Holy Week Liturgy

I have been a bit busy for past few weeks and, thus, could not post more than one article for March.  Sorry for this.  Now it is already April and, in Japan, new school year and fiscal year of 2012 has started.  Then this year's Holy Week has began with the Palm Sunday on 1 April.   I visited and celebrated Mass in Kamo Church in Niigata Prefecture. Kamo city is an hour drive from my house in Niigata city. It was a clod day like winter with strong wind and cold rain. Kamo Catholic community is a small community and they have lost two strong senior members recently. However, the community members are trying their best to create a family like friendly community there.  Also they have just get their new parish priest in person of Rev. Fr. Kotaro SAKAMOTO, until now an associate parish priest of the Cathedral.  Photo above is almost all the members of Kamo who attended the Palm Sunday Mass.

Now as we are in the Holy Week, let me post the schedule of liturgy in Niigata Cathedral.
