Easter message

Fr Christy and Fr Ben

EASTER MESSAGE: As we celebrate the great day of the Lord’s Resurrection, we are reminded that it is a celebration that goes on for 50 days. For us, it is a time that speaks of hope and encouragement. That evil will never triumph. Good will always win out and for this we are eternally grateful. May you all know the peace, love and light of the Risen Christ in your hearts. May he heal all your ills. May you find comfort, hope and consolation  in Him, who suffered, died but more importantly, is Risen. In this Year of Mercy, may you truly know his love and be surrounded by the loving mercy of our God who in Jesus gives us the promise of sharing in this Easter here and in eternity. May you all be truly blessed.                                                                                                                                                 Fr Christy    Fr Ben

Christmas Message 2015

                                                                                        The Child is a Gift   

Christmas, a time for giving and receiving, a time for sharing and caring, a time for family, a time for peace and goodwill.  Let us not forget those for whom this Christmas will be a lonely and difficult time.

The Child of Bethlehem is God’s gift to us.  He is the promise of God now fulfilled.  Jesus is the human face of God.  He shows us that the Father is merciful. 

In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis invites us, to reach out, to be filled with the powerful, all embracing mercy of God. 

As we celebrate God’s gift of Jesus to us, we wish you every peace and blessing, and pray you may be touched by the Gift of God.

Easter Message from Fr Christy

Fr Christy

The Lord is truly Risen, alleluia, alleluia!

Hope springs eternal in the human breast. So goes the old proverb. But, it is true really, isn’t it? Without something to give us hope, without something to brighten up our days, life would be sheer darkness and drudgery.
