A parishioner’s comments
Processing into the church on Easter Sunday morning and seeing the artistic portrayal of Easter by world famous painters since Giotto in 1305, had an enormously powerful impact, and quite an emotional experience — bringing tears to our eyes.
We felt connected to Christians over past centuries in the observance of the Easter story. Symbolism being most significant in our Faith.
10.00am Sung Eucharist
Services have now resumed. You are most welcome to join us at 8 am or 10am

Lighten our darkness, Lord we pray, and by your great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of your only Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Grant us, Lord, the lamp of charity which never fails, that it may burn in us and shed its light on those around us , and that by its brightness we may have a vision of that holy City, where dwells the true and never-failing light, Jesus Christ our Lord. amen.
I wonder how many times in life you have had the great exhilaration of worthy plans for the future, that marvellous feeling of planning a new endeavour that is so good that many people, family and friends want to join you. It’s marvellous! Often though the reality of the situation proves to be less than glamorous and what began so wonderfully well turns out be a drag, a pain or just plain boring.
Palm Sunday is one of my favourite days in the calendar as we enter liturgically into the joy of Jesus’ disciples and friends as they enter the Holy City. I bet many of them had ‘that new appliance feeling’ but like many of life’s experiences the joy began to be eclipsed by betrayal, desertion, rejection and finally death. The human temptation is to protect ourselves from disappointment and never enter the Palm Sunday moments of life – this would be a tragedy of great proportions. We are called to celebrate, rejoice, proceed, enter fully into all the joys of life despite the potential disappointments.
I have met people who never drink alcohol for fear of getting drunk – that’s ok but gee they are missing some wonderful fun and laughter.
Celebrate and laugh as we give thanks to God for this wonderful Jesus who joins us in pain, laughter and celebration.
