Happy Easter!
I would like to wish all our parishioners a very happy celebration of the Solemnity of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus. Many thanks too to all those who dedicated their time and energy to preparing for the celebrations of this great season. I would personally thank in a very special way the cleaners, the florist, the choir, the altar servers, the sacristans, the readers and Eucharistic minsters. God bless you all.

Happy Easter from Fr Anthony
