 Dear Gene  

May your Easter season be filled with encounters of the Risen Christ!
 
With love in Jesus,
Fr. Rob and Mo. Lyn

 

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah

A huge "shout out" to all of you who helped make Holy Week and Easter so profoundly lifegiving. I had people--both regulars and visitors--saying these were some of the most moving and uplifting services they had ever attended. 

 

Thank you to acolytes, layreaders, altar guild members, musicians, greeters, Jedi masters of sound and overheads, and everyone else who pitched in to help. A particularly big thank you to Ron Stewart and Fred Collin who spent over seven hours to help us get ready for the Easter Vigil. Many blessings to our newly baptised members: Tracy Parker, Lynette Nyaggah, and Christopher Robinson. 

 

My heart overflows with gratitude when I think of the beautiful ways in which you express the servant heart of Christ.

 

Fr. Rob (With an "Amen! Amen! Amen!" from Mo Lyn)
