What to do with old palms...
We will nor be accepting and burning old palms this year; so, you may wonder what you should do with your old palms.
Palms received on Palm Sunday have been blessed, and in light of that, the proper way to dispose of them is to either bury them, or burn them and bury the ashes.

Something to think about...questions for this week
“Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose hope is in the Lord.” How do you live your life that exemplifies your trust and hope in the Lord? Do you live a life of good example? Do you bring God’s love to others?
(Though it varies from person to person, it generally takes no less than 21 days to develop a new habit. It also takes discipline, courage and determination on a daily basis.)
Please note: There is NO Bingo at Mary, MoM.
