Garment of Suffering

Published on March 7, 2017

During the Season of Lent you are invited to contribute to our “Garment of Suffering”. The Cross is felt in all our lives. This garment will be created out of pieces of cloth that will be sown together creating a tapestry of colour and rich symbolism.

Your piece of cloth may be a piece of clothing belonging to yourself or a loved one that represents aspects of suffering, bereavement, loss, depression, addiction, illness or loneliness. This garment will be a rich symbol for our Easter Triduum and will be draped around the Cross on Good Friday.

Please bring a piece of cloth (approx. 5×5 inches) to represent your story and place in one of the baskets in the Church during Lent. A basket will also be available in the Parish Centre.
