The website is being used, but not as much as it could be.  The Parish Facebook page and Twitter feeds are particularly under-utilised and we could do with some attention from a volunteer.

We have received a letter of Easter greetings from Fr David Cullen in Zambia, telling us of his Easter celebrations in parish, hospital and prison and of some of the ways he uses our donations to help the poorest in Zambia: helping the sick and their families, children to attend school, girls to escape prostitution, etc.  The full letter is on the website (see below). If you would like a copy but don’t have easy internet access, please ask Rosemary Milligan

Thanks

Many thanks to all who contributed to the celebration of the Easter Triduum; it was a beautiful few days and a worthy celebration of Our Lord’s Passion, Death and Resurrection, made all the more so by the generous participation of many.

Fr Nick.
