Dear Parishioners,

Easter Timetable Risen ChristI would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Parish Team to wish you all a very happy and blessed Easter.  This is such a wonderful time of the year for us, as followers of Christ, as this great mystery is the very reason that we can live in hope.

In this Year Of mercy it is good to remind ourselves that we need to renew our hearts’ openness to Christ and by our words and actions show Christ to those around us. I would like to thank all those who have made the Easter ceremonies such a prayerful and memorable time in our Parish.  Fr. Andrew
