Happy Easter! He is Risen!

Happy Easter! We rejoice on this great day, for ―this is the day the Lord has made” (Ps 118) - the day of Salvation! I hope you all had a meaning and fruitful Lenten season. I’d like to thank those who took part in the Easter Liturgies, and those who helped me organise them. Congratulations to the new members of the Church: Kathryn Griffin, Regina Rodewald, and Arian van Eijk; and to Craig Wilson, for receiving the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist. We pray that they may become faithful witnesses of the faith and zealous proclaimers of the good news through their words and actions.

 “Peace be with you” These were the first words of the Risen Lord to his disciples after his Resurrection (John 20:19). As we celebrate with joy, let us pray for the gift of peace that the Risen Lord brings—peace in the world, peace in our country, peace in our parishes, peace in our homes and peace in our hearts. Peace be with you all. Fr. JeLo
