"Rejoice in the Lord always. Again
I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything
by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses
all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" (Philip. 4:4-7).
May the joy of Pascha
fill our hearts with love for our Lord and one another, and may the light of the Empty Tomb shine on our path to His Kingdom.
On behalf of the Parish Council, I wish you all a blessed and Happy Easter! In the glory of the Risen Lord, Fr. George A.
