Latest Update - March/April 2024







27TH MARCH 2024


Hello everyone!


Christ with me, Christ before me,

Christ behind me, Christ in me,

Christ beneath me, Christ above me,

Christ on my right, and Christ on my left. Amen.


Here we are in the middle of Holy Week looking towards Easter. Our picture - with knitted figures – reminds us of one of the many things that Jesus did during this week, as we travel this final week of Lent. Jesus called us to love one another as he has loved us, and to serve one another and our world. Our response – Alleluia. Amen.
