Easter 2022

As we celebrate Easter once again I take this opportunity to thank all those who have contributed so much to the celebration of our Holy Week Ceremonies. There are too many to mention- but please rest assured we are all so grateful for all you do. All of you are so involved in the life of the parish all year around, and we never take you for granted. So many visitors continue to marvel at the great spirit of service so evident here- so to all who play a part, take a bow. 

Thankfully we were able for the first time in a few years to celebrate the Easter Ceremonies with a physical congregation, and we continue to have a virtual one as well. Our World and our Country continues to emerge slowly out of the nightmare of Co Vid 19. It has left behind many broken hearts, and shattered lives. It has also though shown us how resilient we really are, and how important it is to cherish those two firm pillars of life, family and faith. In years to come people will look back with pride at all those who stepped up to the plate with no thought of their own safety and well being. Our prayer is that the virus continues to disappear apace. 

Over the next 50 days the Church’s Liturgy will celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus. The Resurrection was the response of God to the life and death of His only Son. The days of Lent are behind us, and hopefully we are the better for them. Our world needs the witness of the Christian Faith more than ever as we continue to witness the madness of War in the World, especially in Ukraine. May lasting peace come quickly. 

On behalf of all the Parish Team I wish all our parishioners and visitors to our parish every blessing and grace at Easter. May Easter Peace be yours in abundance. 

Fr. Michael P.P.
