My dear Parishioners,
Happy Easter! This note brings my love and prayers for you and your family. After the general darkness of the past year Christ’s light is breaking through.
I spent a week in the hospital in mid-March dealing with familiar stomach pain. I had chest pains while I was there and then ended up with pneumonia. I am glad to be home in the rectory now.
For a while I was beset with darkness and chaos, loss of control and terrible frustration. The Lord kept coming to me in the healing hands and voices of health teams, family and friends. My worries turned to hope. It’s the story of the Passion and Resurrection of the Lord in each believer’s life.
How grateful I am to our parish liturgy team who have done so well to prepare us for Holy Week and Easter. You inspire me and I thank you.
Father Tochi and Father Christian join me in wishing you Christ’s light and peace.
Sincerely in Christ,
