Easter Crosses Resurrection

Easter Message from St Francis Choir

Resurrection_Easter_Watercolor

Dear friends,

This Easter is one unlike any other for many of us. We celebrate our greatest Feast with muted joy in isolation with our immediate household, or alone. The world suffers and we may feel powerless.

But today we are reminded:

Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified… he has risen, just as he said.”
Matthew 28:5-6

Remembering the promise we will never be abandoned, we find time to reach out to one another and share this cause for celebration.

As we observe this Easter, many in our own homes, we consider how we can remain a community, helping others with our care and practical assistance.

The St Francis Choir wishes all our friends peace and joy during the Easter season.

Christ is risen, alleluia!
