Easter Sunday


Christ is Risen! Indeed, He is Risen!

These ancient words of the Church’s tradition announce the joy of the Lord’s resurrection. They celebrate the victory of Christ over death.
Christ’s victory is our victory. Our lives are busy and full of many things. Easily we become overwhelmed with all the busyness and demands of life. Sometimes we are scared.

The message of Easter reminds us that hope is always abundant as we trustingly have faith in God’s promise that grace fills our lives. Easter invites us to step back from the busyness of life and present worries to enjoy the eternal promise of hope which our Risen Christ brings.
May the joy of the Easter promise fill you with the hope that nothing, not even the Covid-19 virus, can separate you from God’s love and presence.

Christ is Risen! Indeed, He is Risen!

Happy Easter.
