Christ is Risen, Alleluia!
I want to thank everyone for all the hard work and service to the parish community who made the celebrations of Holy Week, the Triduum and Easter Sunday be such prayerful and ultimately joyful celebrations. The church looked resplendent. Also Bp Robert was so pleased to be with us on Easter Sunday and it was a joy for us to have him with us too.
I am also happy that I can tell you that my Visa has been renewed and I am with you now until Sept 2020, so you are going to have to put up with me until then at least! I came back to the parish the Saturday before Palm Sunday after five weeks away on Josephite business and full of jet lag to find everything was fine and Easter etc., prepared for. So I want to thank all involved in the running of the parish both staff and volunteers. It is important for us to remember that this is a large parish that takes a lot of work to maintain and to be on mission. Perhaps you might like to think of the Easter season as your time to ponder how you might offer time and or you talents to the life of the parish. There is a lot that needs doing.
It is good to be back.
God bless you and your families,
Fr Aidan Peter CJ
