Many thanks to all who helped with the Holy Week ceremonies,

- sacristans and servers, youth group; altar society and church cleaners, the Parish Choir, the Folk Group, musicians, organists and cantors:

commentators, readers and Eucharistic Ministers;

participants in the washing of the Feet and

the presentation of the gifts on Holy Thursday.

Eucharistic ministers who took Holy Communion to the sick and housebound.

Those who assisted for the Veneration of the Cross,

and those who lead the Stations on Good Friday.

Those who prepared the Palm for Palm Sunday,

the altar of repose for Holy Thursday and those

who prepared the flowers for Holy Thursday,

the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday.

We wish all our parishioners a very happy and Joyful Easter.

An Easter Blessing

May the risen Christ fill you with joy,

a joy only he can give.

May his triumph bring new hope

and new light into your life.

May you share today in the exaltation

experienced by all his disciples.

May you be a witness to his resurrection

to all you meet and greet today.   Amen.
